Israeli Soldiers. Ben Yehuda Street is a large boulevard in Jerusalem lined with shops and cafes. It is a tourists delight for eating, shopping and just seeing the sights.
This photo, sorry the flash didn't work, is of some of the Israeli Army soldiers who are patroling to keep the population safe from bombing and other terrorist activities. There had been an explosion on this street two weeks before. It is two blocks from our hotel.
Both young men and women are required to spend a few years in the military after graduation from high school. They do not go to college immediately, sometimes even after serving in the Army, some of them take a year to go to Europe or some other destination.
