A stairway to (a blue) heaven

Israel's sky is blue with no rain in sight. All week we have been having a heat wave.
It's back to sandals and T shirts, for now at least.

As shot from the bus window, this is Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem.

Click the photo to see the unique staircase.
Yad Sarah, the largest voluntary organization in Israel, provides a spectrum of free or nominal cost services designed to make life easier for sick, disabled and elderly people and their families.
There are over 100 branches all over Israel.

Yad Sarah is best known for its lending of crutches, wheelchairs, etc.
Together with our Foreign Ministry, Yad Sarah is donating three tons of medical equipment to Haiti.
Happy SkyWatch Friday!

Are you sure it's not a modern effort for a tower of Babel?

The stairs are interesting, but I am more impressed with the services the organization provides.

Beautiful modern building, even more beautiful when we think it belongs to a voluntary organization.
