Getting Ready for Israeli Independence Day, Yom Ha'atzma'ut!

Yesterday when I was walking from Emek Refa'im Street to the Jerusalem Municipality to catch the train, I spotted this friendly young man selling Israeli Flags, "just five shekels." 

That's a sign that Israeli Independence Day, Yom Ha'atzma'ut is very soon. He would have been more effective if he had dressed the part in Blue and White.

Actually I had done it in Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin, just the day before.

I'm the unofficial "window dresser." we don't have real windows to dress, but we do have a few manikins who/that got the "Blue and White treatment" to prepare for the upcoming holiday! Israeli Independence Day, Yom Ha'atzma'ut is in just under two weeks, Tuesday, May 6, 2014.

Next week we'll be celebrating Rosh Chodesh Iyyar.

Next month is Iyar, and we have special plans for a brunch after the prayers at the Tel Shiloh, You'll have to reserve for the brunch (email shilohmuse at gmail dot com subject Rosh Chodesh Iyar) so we know for how many to prepare, but the prayers don't need reservations.
