Kindness in silence

This old house was new to me. I discovered it while roaming the old Jerusalem neighborhood called Nahlaot.

The sign over its door, the yin yang circle and SiLENCE, is not the kind of thing you would expect to see on a Jewish street.

The kind folks there have set up a whole feeding and watering station for passing animals.

That is so intriguing. Whoever they are, they are kind. Bless them.

Kay said...

Gosh, your sparrows look just like the sparrows in Illinois! It's very nice to remember the animals' needs, too.

It is good to see such caring towards wildfe in such a troubled human world.

Interesting and unusual place. Is that sort of grill work on doors and windows common, or specific to that building?

From the looks of the things put out on the street for the animals, they appear to be feeding more than birds.

..another beautiful treasure.

Can you imagine Dina that we are evicted for feeding the pigeons on our balconies in my highrise building.

It seems so practical and terrible at the same time but then we can feed them elsewhere. I think they are so pretty. They gleam in the sunlight.

Gretchen said...

That's very nice of them to do that. Most people don't seem to care about animals these days.

this is really quite amazing - it's difficult to imagine this anywhere

ps - i could do with some chicken soup, my husband has taken over the cooking, but he's doing manly dishes like rabbit stew - i know he's just helping around the house, so i'm pretending to like it...
