Tuesday Inspiration

The Tuesday Inspiration“ began in 2009 when two PB members started setting each other a challenge on a… Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, it was decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 60 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ”rules": don’t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please contact Helen [photoblog.com]

This week's theme was chosen by Dan [photoblog.com]

In response to Jay's request for information below…

These are more old shots from my Israel trip 2 years ago.

This was in the airport in Ukraine, and they were pretty upset that I took it (I think it was near passport control.)

Matzah oven for handmade matzahs in Kfar Chabad… around 2,000 degrees F.
The original post is 2 years back.
More info about matzah and Passover/Pesach and a humorous video in my last year's post HERE [photoblog.com]

Looking out from the Mamilla Mall, Jerusalem.

Mamilla Mall again. All the old buildings were taken apart and labelled, stone by stone, and later rebuilt into a very cool shopping center and luxury apartments.

Old city, Jerusalem

Looking through a hole in the wall at the back of the Western Wall / Kotel Plaza

Yad V'Shem, Holocaust Museum, children's memorial

Kotel Tunnels, Jerusalem

Hevron, Cave of the Patriarchs

Hevron, Synagogue of our father Avraham

Hevron, Cave of the Patriarchs, Grave of our mother Leah

Outside wall enclosing the grave of our mother Rochel. Unfortunately it had to be built (altogether and) like a fortress, to protect visitors from constant rock throwing attacks.

Keyhole on inner door at Rochel's grave. Someone has left a prayer request inside the door

Wall adjacent to the Kotel/Western Wall

Jerusalem. Private balcony with frame for a sukkah (hut we eat in on the holiday of Sukkos.)

I think a water tunnel in the City of David, Jerusalem.

City of David

Outside City of David

Entrance to an old bunker on border with (Lebanon?)



Tsfat or Yerushalayim

Tveria, entrance to graves of Rabbi Akiva and the Ramchal (Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto)

Thank you Leah!! I would love to get to Jerusalem one day. I know that I would "drown" in the immense depth of history there and eat up every minute of it.
