Posters and politics


P is for posters and politics.
Last Tuesday  Israel had municipal elections.
Remember my post with the mirror on the billboard?  The message there was that "Kehila is actually YOU."
Well,  in my town  Avner Ben Gera, leading the Kehila list (~party),  will continue as head of Meitar Local Council for another five years.
The poster (shot through the bus window)  says that the good work will go on  because Meitar is in good hands.
The fence adds some strange stripes to Avner,  but obviously the majority of  residents of Meitar think he has earned his stripes and they voted accordingly.
(Linking to ABC Wednesday  where the introduction today is about protective vests for police dogs. Very interesting.)

Good luck with Avner Ben Gera, may he be successful for five more years.

Political posters are something that we all have.

The language is different, but the general layout of a political banner is not all that different from here...

Didn't know the Pope was coming to your neck of the woods. Good luck with your political campaigns.

Really political posters are same the world over. We're having some great political action here in India too.

So happy for you that your family is with uou or 6 months♥ Will they later move here for good? So interesting to read about the Cochin Jewish Heritage Center. A new place to visit. Have you seen the Open House arrangement in Jerusalem. I think we will go and then try to get as many places in as possible. Aטy you can recommend? This is the list: http://batim.itraveljerusalem.com/tourseng.aspx?batim=

Tina, shalom. There is always hope that my family will move back.
I haven't had time yet to go through the list for Houses from Within. Any place you pick in and around Jerusalem is interesting. But the ones that are not normally open to the public, like the Kishle, -- this is a great opportunity to get in.
But the online registration seems to fill up within the first minutes.

I for sure hope that they will be near you permanently one day! I know about the online registration. Maybe I will be ready at midnight today LOL. Tomorrow the registration starts. Some are without though. We'll see. Have a great day dear Dina♥
