The 11th Floor

A Perpsective Overlooking Jerusalem, Israeli Life, and Talmud Torah

Thursday, February 21, 2008

There is nothing wrong with your scren.

You are entering another dimension.
Not a dimension of sight or sound, but of Israeli-ness… in this dimension the familiar is unfamiliar, and what you think you know… is bright pink.

You are in the Yerushalmi Zone.

Look carefully at the picture:
Yes, that is a "Best Buy." Stereos. TV’s. Appliances.

Israelis love English. Some verbs: L’sabseyd (to subsidize). L’fakses (to fax). L’kombak (to have a come-back). Some stores: Mister Zol (Mr. Cheap), Supersol Deal, Supersol Big, Super Deal, and Mega. So naturally, there is a Best Buy in Jerusalem. Nifty, eh?
