Sabra Album 9th of Av edition

Continuing to post pictures that talk about how Israel is such a special and interesting place. These pictures are so unique to Israel that they are part of the popular “Sabra Album” (Click here for definition of Sabra).

For previous versions of the Sabra Album click on: Take 1 , Take 2 , Take 3, Take 4, Take 5, Take 6 – Marketing Edition, Take 7 and Machane Yehuda Edition.

Now to our new Sabra Album.

Just as I did last year (From Destruction to Love (Peace & Love)) to finish the 9 of Av fast (marking the destruction of the two Batei Mikdash/Holy Temples among other atrocious events in Jewish history) –I went to Jerusalem to the Western Wall. The entire experience was so unique to Israel. Here are some pictures so unique to Israel.

Thousands of people filled the Western Wall

Fast breaking “oasis”

Right after the fasting is over thousands of hungry man and woman rush to this “oasis” to get a free drink, coffee and sweet pastries. Note the separation for men and women.

Now the most interesting part is the drink disposing technology. This is better than any modern refrigerator or any home soda maker, just turn the faucet and you get instantly cold: Soda, Water or Petel (flavored water). Genius!!!

I hope you enjoyed this edition of the Sabra album. Feel free always to comment on my blog. Next I’m planning on a Sabra Album Baywatch edition.

You might have noticed a new countdown clock on the blog. I have decided to keep indefinitely the “Next Family ALIYAH” clock since ultimately I will see you all here. The other clock is for the “Next family visit”.

We are so excited for both clocks that almost reached 0. We are happy to welcome soon our cousin from NY who will be here for a year, and right after that we will be welcoming my in-laws that are making Aliyah and little by little reuniting the entire family. Yishar Koach to you!
