Today's idea for City Daily Photo theme day is "Take away store."
Every CDP blogger will have quite a different example to show you.
One of the things I miss about Jerusalem are the shwarma stands on just about every corner.
For a little over 20 shekels you can get a whole delicious meal in a paper bag.
It is fun to watch the man "shave" the nicely-spiced chicken and turkey and/or lamb meat off the turning skewer, stuff it in a pita, and add salads, humus, tehina, and French fries on top.
And a nice story about shwarma in today's Chabad.org/News. Rabbi Danny Cohen tells this:
I visited soldiers on Sunday, right on the front lines in one of the areas where the units go in and come out. Our staff has been making daily visits to these places. After a few days, due to the generous support of others, we realized that for the time being, they have enough underwear, socks and toiletries for now to open a Costco. . . .
Instead, we have a friend/donor who insisted on sponsoring hot food for the soldiers, who are used to being served airplane-quality cuisine.
So we rolled into the area with 350 portions of hot shwarma in pitas.
The soldiers said at first, they thought it was an illusion due to the heat ... they were so appreciative that was hard to find someone who didn’t want to put on tefillin as well.
On Wednesday, we brought 450 falafel in pita sandwiches, again from sponsors (blessings on their heads). This was met with countless smiles; the food provides energy and nourishment for the soldiers. And about 150 guys wrapped tefillin.
