Waiting in the Wings
In honor of Purim, there were plenty of events on the downtown pedestrian mall today: clowns on stilts, dancers and singers, jugglers, you name it. But a surprise waited in the smaller alleyways leading onto the mall: three ponies who came, together with their people, all the way from a farm in the Sharon region, about an hour’s drive north of Jerusalem. When I met them, they were waiting for police permission to enter the main area.
I’m sure they eventually got their entry clearance. How long could anyone resist these sweet ponies?
