Tel Aviv. Not exactly the ‘holy city’ like Jerusalem and not exactly the quiet atmosphere of the Galilee…. but every city in all of Israel comes together for this day.
No public transportation. No personal vehicles allowed on any street. No stores or businesses open…. nothing but a day of country-wide fasting…. and bike riding.
It’s traditional on Yom Kippur, because of the no-car rule, for everyone to ride their bicycles in the streets. Here are a couple pics down on the beach road of good ol’ Tel Aviv. I will admit it was kinda cool walking down the middle of the road with everyone else, not having to worry about traffic!
