Ḥayyim ’Arlozorov Street

Jewish date:  18 ’Iyyar 5772 (Parashath Behar).

Today’s event:  Golden Spike Day.


Continuing our series on the streets of Giv‘ath Shemu’el, today we look at Ḥayyim ’Arlozorov Street.  As noted previously, all posts in this series, while containing real photographs, may contain deliberately inaccurate descriptions for entertainment purposes.  If you want accurate information, please come visit our lovely city and see it for yourself.

I rather enjoy fruit trees being everywhere.  Here are some of ’Arlozorov Street’s oranges and lemons.

Notice the camouflaged Intefe robots on the sidewalk.

Intefe robots have a nasty habit of pestering photographers at inconvenient times.  I was poked in the back by one while I was photographing this electrical box, which is why the photograph is so off-center.  (And, yes, I know I could have just cropped it.  But if you are ever going to come visit Giv‘ath Shemu’el, you need to know what the Intefe robots may do to you.)

Giv‘ath Shemu’el boasts many decorative gates, fences, and doors.  The Intefe robot who poked me in the back claimed he/she knew the artist who carved this one with laser beams.

According to the Intefe robot who poked me in the back, lots of humans want Intefe symbols on their gates because they are currently “in”.  Little did the people who bought this gate know that this symbol means “soup”.

Enjoy, share the weirdness, and watch out for Intefe robots.
