Another "Only In Israel" Succot Celebrated So Publicly

I'm not the first to shoot this sort of photo:

This Egged, public bus, not only has its number, but the greeting מועדים לשמחה Mo'adim L'Simcha, A Joyful Holiday alternates with the geographical destination.

There never was a time when all Jews were strictly Torah observant.  That is except for those few magic moments at Mount Sinai when all Jewish souls, alive and yet to be born declared:
 "נעשה ונשמה" "Na'aseh v'nishma," "We will do (obey/observe) and we will listen." 

Anyone who claims otherwise is wrong.  We Jews, as humans,  have always had free will, and that enables us to sin.  So, those who want to concentrate on the problems here in Israel with Torah observance will tell you how awful it is.  Of course it's easy to complain about the problems and sins of others, but I want to show you the wonderful Jewish life here.

Enjoy this medley of pictures I took in Jerusalem over Succot.  There are more on my facebook page.

It says: Chol HaMoed, CLOSED, Chag Sameach, Happy Holiday

Israel's a Jewish Country, with good and bad, just like the Jewish People.

Chag Sameach and Shabbat Shalom
