FREE TO BE

The Jerusalem Post - The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - LETTERS -

In “The free-stuff lure” (Novem­ber 29), Herb Keinon’s writ­ing is as amus­ing and as ed­i­fy­ing as al­ways, beau­ti­fully ty­ing to­gether his dogged de­ter­mi­na­tion to en­joy a su­per­flu­ous free visit to an air­port lounge with Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu’s Case 1000 po­lit­i­cal dif­fi­cul­ties.

While there is no get­ting around the in­escapable fact that money plays a cen­tral role in our lives, there is ac­tu­ally a lot of free stuff for us and our guests to en­joy here in Is­rael. A very par­tial list in­cludes: 1) Jerusalem’s Old City, Ko­tel and

Tem­ple Mount

2) Yad Vashem – and sev­eral other mu­se­ums across the coun­try

3) The Knes­set tour

4) The Supreme Court tour

5) The Ma­haneh Ye­huda mar­ket

6) The Elec­tric Com­pany power plant tours 7) Haifa’s Baha’i Gar­dens

8) Beaches and scenic prom­e­nades all

along the coast

9) Shab­bat hos­pi­tal­ity meals

In ad­di­tion, it is good to re­mem­ber that some of the best things in life re­ally are free: fresh air, sun­shine, hugs, smiles and laugh­ter with fam­ily and friends. Oh, and In­ter­net surf­ing on Wi-Fi. BETH RHODES
