An evening view out the windows of a new building going up in Meitar.
Meitar was founded in 1984 here in the northern Negev as a yeshuv kehilati, what I like to translate as a planned community.
Over the years, five neighborhoods have been built, one after another.
Now Number six is in progress.
See this aerial orthophoto from 2014 to grasp the layout.
I'm so curious what this will be.
A public building, I'm assuming.
The architecture looks almost like a mosque, but we have only a small percentage of Bedouin families living in Meitar, probably not enough to warrant a mosque.
Maybe this sloping hole in the ground will become a big mikva, and the building is really a synagogue?
Time will tell.
Meanwhile, for ABC Wednesday, W is for wonderfully weird windows and walls.
