Yom Kippur Highway

Yom Kippur Highway

Absolutely no one drive their cars on Yom Kippur in Israel, at least not in major Jewish population centers, such as Netanya, Tel Aviv, and in the picture above Jerusalem. So Secular Israelis take advantage of the holy day’s unintended consequences and ride their bikes and skateboards on the streets and even on the highways. Nothing to fear.

It’s amazing to think the Egyptians thought it would be to their advantage to attack Israel on Yom Kippur. I suppose they had visions of themselves on Ramadan, weakened by the fast. They attacked on the one day where all of Israel’s adults were either in shul or at home, and easily reached by the army roundup guys.

Friday night was quite noisy on Jabotinsky Street in Netanya. You’d be amazed how much noise a group of ten skateboards can make when there are no competing traffic sounds to drown them out.

Go build your Sukkah.

    Absolutamente ninguém dirigir seus carros em Yom Kippur, em Israel, pelo menos não em grandes centros populacionais judeus, como Netanya, Tel Aviv, e na foto acima Jerusalém. Então israelenses Secular tirar proveito das conseqüências não intencionais do dia santo de e montar suas bicicletas e skates nas ruas e até mesmo nas estradas. Nada a temer. É incrível pensar que os egípcios pensei que seria a sua vantagem para atacar Israel no Yom Kippur. Suponho que eles tiveram visões de si mesmos em Ramadan, enfraquecido pelo jejum. Eles atacaram em um dia onde todos os adultos de Israel eram ou na sinagoga ou em casa, e facilmente alcançado pelos caras ajuntamento do exército. Sexta à noite era muito barulhento em Jabotinsky Street, em Netanya. Você ficaria espantado com a quantidade de ruído de um grupo de dez skates pode fazer quando não há tráfego competindo sons para afogá-los para fora.

    This reminds me of my youth in Canarsie, Brooklyn, crossing Rockaway Parkway on Yom Kippur on the way to shul.  No automobiles to look out for while crossing the street.
