Safsal halimudim

I always hear of the David Yellin Teachers College (founded in 1913), but I had never seen it.

I found it, back in the winding streets of the Beit Hakerem neighborhood of Jerusalem.

Entering and exploring, I was seized by an urge to register for classes.

The Bench on Friday bloggers who gather every Friday at Visual Norway would like this campus.

Outside the student cafeteria, picnic tables with benches on all four sides.

Two benches peeking through the little aquatic garden.

In the winter, rain is collected from the roof, stored in these containers, and fed into the circuit of the little waterfall and pool-garden to make up for water lost to evaporation.

The benches at the adjacent school's playground were the typical sturdy metal type, meant for wear and tear.

I really enjoyed my first visit to David Yellin teachers seminary. Lots of learning going on!

Hi Dina! I like all these benches, for they look so inviting and I always sit down on an inviting place when I am travelling, cycling or just walking. The Teacher's College looks great!

I just love discovering stuff. Thanks for sharing yours.

Good discovery, Dina! Looks like a relaxing place to enjoy a coffee and a treat! (I'm hung up on coffee and treats - sorry)

Go GREEN with the water program - great!

So many lovely places to sit! I need a circular bench like that around my avocado tree. I think of all these you show us today, the aquatic park is what draws me.

Lots of wonderful benches! I hope malyss gets hoem from vacation soon and finds your benches when catching up on blog reading. She would love them as I do! Each is interesting but the circular one around the tree is especially neat!

My bench is up so drop by.

We would indeed have enjoyed them. My favourite would have been the one circling the tree. It has the "personal touch"
