Is this really Israel? Last year I posted a post, “I like Tisha B’Av.” This year, in Jerusalem at the Jewish Quarter and Western Wall, not so much. Not just right wing and orthodox, but stone-like and hermetically sealed. Serves me right. Here’s what I do like, however. That would be the irregular holes and cracks in the wall that complicate what is not a flat and regular surface. Will try to read the Book of Lamentations on my own tomorrow morning someplace more quiet and secular. Next year in New York?
