I left work today just after 5 PM and boarded the #18 bus for town.
Five minutes into the ride, a youngster, maybe 15, with a Chabad hat, begins walking down the bus aisle handing out these Travellers' Prayer cards:
Now, for all you in New York and other places, the custom of walking up and down subway cars, etc., is not unknown - not to speak of singing and dancing. But in Israel? In Jerusalem?

Oh, well, the "Meshichistim" are in town.
A "Meshichistim" site.
