Things that are cool in Israel #10: Holy Sandwich Bar, Batgirl!


Since my last post about restaurants was kind of kvetchy, I figured I’d balance that with a quickie about something that was awesome the same evening we went to a place and they started giving me THE STORY (read that post and you’ll understand!)

Want to know what’s cool here???

You go to order your sandwiches, and they’re served up with a side of scripture.  That’s what.

Here you go, your typical Israeli deli takeout place, at the Kiryon, our local mall.  Notice anything?



Notice it now???


Okay, I’ll make this super-duper easy…



Weird hands, where they don’t belong.

Weird flat metal hands, holding up the sandwich pictures.  When I saw them, I was like, “Huh?!?”
Then, I noticed the text.

I thought it was part of the sign at first, then part of the door, then I realized that this is Israel, so it had to be something Jewy.  Which, indeed, it turned out to be.


The text reads:

פּוֹתֵחַ אֶת-יָדֶךָ;    וּמַשְׂבִּיעַ לְכָל-חַי רָצוֹן.

“You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.” (Tehillim/Psalms 145:16)


So, yeah… Just yer typical small-town mall food-court sandwich joint.  Pretty cool, right???

Oh, drat – but nothing in this post about Batgirl, despite the title.  Sorry.
