Weekly photo challenge: A day in my life through Jerusalem’s street names

Jerusalem’s street names constantly remind me that I am engulfed by the history of my people and my city. I’m fascinated by the names and seeing them shapes my day-to-day life here.

For example, I might meet a friend on Ben Yehuda Рnamed after the man who reawakened the ancient Hebrew language, transforming it into a modern tongue.

And then we might walk on Agron – named after a mayor of Jerusalem and the founder of the Jerusalem Post (then with a different name).

Here is a day in my Jerusalem life, based on some of the typical street names I pass on a regular basis. Click on the pictures to see a slideshow with explanations about all the of the street names mentioned here:
