I was walking to the supermarket this morning when I saw this:
It really bothered me, and so I posted about it in social media. “Nothing like some racism to ruin your gorgeous chol hamoed morning. I guess I know what my family is doing this morning. Anyone know how to get spray paint off walls?”
Within an hour the Iriyah (municipality) came and cleaned it up, the incident was reported in the news, and concerned Jerusalemites spread the word through Facebook and Twitter.
And we? We spent our morning in the park with our friend and neighbor Ilana Nelson, painting new signs to replace the ugly words…
… and to show that we can create love instead of hate.
