Why I Love Living in Israel: Reason No. 3,763.2

This sign invites all passersby into the garden to recite the blessing of the trees ... and it’s right in my neighborhood.

Invitation to make blessing over trees

The sign reads: “To Whom It May Concern: We welcome you to our garden to make Birkat ha-Ilanot. Please ring the bell.”

How lovely. Only in Israel. (If it’s not, if you’ve seen such signs in other countries, please tell me about them.)
