M is the letter of the day on ABC Wednesday.
Metal shutters blowing in the wind?
Little people made of iron!
Known by their Yiddish name, these sweet menschelach are collectors items today.
I always kind of feel sorry for her when she has to hang upside down, not needed, if the shutters are shut.
Menschelach were brought to Israel by the Templers .
The Templegesellschaft was a German sect of Protestants expelled from the Lutheran Church in 1868. They came to Eretz Israel in the 19th and 20th centuries and founded settlements.
Jerusalem's beautiful German Colony was built by the industrious Templers, beginning in 1878.
