Friday Window

“In Jerusalem, music is played over a loud speaker some minutes before the SHABBAT SIREN (a siren that goes off letting you know that it is time for candle lighting.) In my neighborhood, the loud speaker blares from the next building or so. Minutes before the Shabbat siren, my daughter sits in the window enjoying the music and I am waiting to do her hair…only in Israel:  my room is the Ma’amad – the safe room in the house – as evident by the bars and the iron shutters.”
