Photo of the Week – Finally, rain

It was the question on everyone’s lips this November – where is the rain? After months and months of summer sunshine, even the biggest sun-lovers were starting to get fed up as temperatures stayed high late into the month – sometimes even topping 36 degrees centigrade.
 
According to figures released by the Israel Meteorological Service at the start of December, Israel in November recorded some of its lowest ever rainfall levels in 55-70 years (when records began). It was also the hottest November in 60 years.
 
The rain and cold weather Israel is currently experiencing will continue until tomorrow, when a new cold front is due in – bringing thunderstorms, high winds and low temperatures to all parts of the country. There’s even a chance of snow in Jerusalem.
 
This week’s photo of the week was taken in Jerusalem during the current storm by Miriam Alster of Flash90.

Photo of the Week – Which sufganiyot?

Hanukkah is well underway in Israel. Candles are being lit all over the country, and doughnuts consumed in enormous quantities.

With the huge range of choice now on offer, from doughnuts stuffed with dulce de leche, to dark chocolate, cream and even berries laced with alcohol, the biggest choice facing most consumers these days is which one to choose.

This week’s photograph was taken in Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda market by Miriam Alster of Flash90.

Photo of the Week – Jerusalem at sunset

Sunset on a roof in the Muslim Quarter, the sounds of the city drifting up on the air.

Thanks go to ISRAEL21c reader Marilyn Lyons for her beautiful shot of Jerusalem.
Marilyn writes: “The photo was taken by me during Succot from the rooftop of a restaurant in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City.  

“Not only was it a beautiful evening visually, but I was surrounded by the mish mash of sounds of Jerusalem, from a young group of men in the streets below singing and dancing to klezmer, to the calling to prayers from the minarets and the gospel singing by the guests of the restaurant.”
