Matza week at the Mifletset-Monster

.
We are still in the week-long holiday of Passover, still eating matza instead of bread.
Kids on Pesach vacation love to play on, in, and under the Mifletset (meaning Monster) in Jerusalem.
My picture of little Eyal posted yesterday was shot from the cavernous inside (bottom) of the sculpture.
An earlier post has more information about the Mifletset (aka The Golem).
.
Here's my visiting daughter and grandsons, with a profile view of the sculpture.
.
First you climb up to the top
.
and then slide down one of the three tongues.
.
Pesach week is when many religious Jewish families can come to this park.
Everybody gets into the act.
Even somebody's bearded grandfather!
.
Go over to ABC Wednesday to enjoy other bloggers' M-Day posts.

HOW EXCITING!No wonder children love the sculpture!

Janie said...

This looks like a lot of fun. Kind of incongruous to see the bearded grandfather on the slide!
I like the photo taken from within the monster in the next post.

Well that is a surprise. I thought it looked something like an ancient earthen jar.

Thanks for visiting

It's a long time since I had matzes, as we call them here. Maybe I'll get some, they're great even though they don't have much flavour. Looks like everyone is having a great time in the pictures. Enjoy yourself Dina!

That looks like such fun! I'm glad you took the shots of the children sliding down the tongues of the monster because it shows the perspective - it's HUGE!

How can sliding down a cow tongue not be fun? Your daughter is beautiful! Just like her Mommy : ). It is always so fun to visit you each week! I feel that I learn so much when I come! It is always a blessing! Hope your Holiday was very special!

Kay said...

What terrific photos, Dina. How wonderful that Naomi and the grandkids can have this special time with you. I remember reading stories about golems to my class.

Once you've slid down the tongue of a three tongued monster nothing else in life will ever scare you!

Suzanne said...

I've loved this mifletset and always wanted to stop...but didn't! Your daughter looks like you (at least the profile) and the grey bearded grampie coming down is priceless.

Catherine said...

Or, how to tame the Mifleset !
I like to watch the bearded grandfather playing like a kid.

JM said...

I bet some kids are afraid of the monster, it's huge! :-)

Intriguing and unusual "M", Dina. I'm glad your grandchildren had a good time.
