yomki2013

yom kippur is by far my favorite jewish holiday. it can only really be celebrated in israel, where people actually take a pause for this; secular, traditional and religious people all treat yom kippur as something special, and that’s what i seriously love about it.
I don’t take part in any of the traditional activities lined up for yom kippur. I don’t fast, i don’t pray, i don’t get bummed out… and it’s the only day of the year that I don’t think that the religious coercion in israel is THAT bad.
i enjoy the silence, the streets, the empty roads, the zombie-walk, the clear and quiet beaches, riding, skating, painting, taking pictures and enjoying this special phenomena that can only be felt here.
going back to my hometown won’t be as exciting as staying in tel aviv, because the contrast isn’t very high, most days there are hardly any cars on the road, so it’s no big deal, but in tel aviv, you really feel it.
