Globular Maimonides (Rehavia) (Jerusalem)

016

A lot of the streets in the Rehavia neighborhood are named after Spanish Jewish philosophers. This sign indicating a street address on Ben Maimon Street caught my eye. I like its modern form. No less than negative theology, it stands out as simple, white, globular. Splashed in shade and encased in green and concrete, there’s a fly on it.

    I lived on Ben Maimon Street in the summer of 1972–in a very different and more innocent time in the history of Israel and Jerusalem. And if I’m not mistaken I lived in 40 Ben Maimon.
