Pictures from the Kotel – Placing the Prayers

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

On October 2nd I went to Jerusalem with a big box full of prayers. 3,812 of your prayers were placed in the Western-Wall that day. Since there were so many prayers to carry and place, I had my childhood friend Dan accompany me in the trip. Below are just some of the many pictures we took that day. I have more touching pictures (and videos!) I’ll share with you soon.

Dan knows where”s the final destination:

Time to place some prayers:

We ran out of places to put the prayers so Dan, who is taller than I am (ex-basketball player) and has longer arms, helped putting remaining prayers deep inside the crevice:

And eventually (it took so long!):

Inside the wall it looked like a river of blue prayers!

Mission accomplished, we can go!

Israel elects – Elections day 2013

   Posted by: Alon   in

Shalom all,

Today, Tuesday the 22nd, Israeli citizens go to the polls for the general elections to the Knesset (Israeli parliament). There are 120 seats and the about 30 different parties are competing for them. Usually the head of the party with most seats gets the right to form a coalition with other parties (at least 61 seats) and if he or she succeeds – he or she become the prime minister.

The process itself is pretty simple and straightforward. Each Israeli 18 years of age or older goes (if he chooses to) to the polls, stands behind a screen for privacy and confidentiality, and chooses one of the ballots, each one represents a party.

Israel elects - Ballots

 

The ballot is then placed in an envelope and sealed (still behind the screen) and then the envelope is placed into a securely closed poll.

 

and that’s it! At 10 PM the polls close, and the people in charge tally the votes. At 10 PM the news shows give their predictions based on their surveys and polls, which are usually pretty accurate.

Before I finish this post, I just want to share Google’s Doodle in the local version of the search engine, special for this day:

 

I like it! Well done!

 

Happy elections day and Shalom from the Holy Land :)
