Cover from Israel
I am back after a short holiday break. In the meantime I received a number of interesting letters and postcards... like this one sent on 25 November 2008 from Tel Aviv-Yafo in Israel. The letter reached me in only 3 days.
It features one nice stamp from a series named Festivals 2008, issued on 17 September 2008, and shows a Polish Torah crown from 1729 used to dress the Torah (the first five books of the Bible) in a synagogue along with a sash and various other ornaments.
The stamp is cancelled by an automatic postmark with texts in Hebrew, Arabic and English. Thank you P.
