The Best Kept Secret in Jerusalem could be...
"The Eliezer Ben-Yehuda Memorial"
founded by the Municipality of Jerusalem
and the Academy of the Hebrew Language
Rabbi Ben-Yehuda stands by the sign --
But where is it?
It is found in a large room in the building of the Hebrew Academy --
whose whereabouts are a mystery to most inhabitants of David's Capital.
Actually it is in Giv'at Ram, the Hebrew University campus near Israel's Knesset.
Should you go there, you'll see...
a small sign by the steps the lead down to the room
the room features the original furniture of the Ben-Yehuda home.
The Ben-Yehuda library is in need of refurbishing.
The bust is of Hemda Ben-Yehuda, second wife of Eliezer
Ada and Dola!
The Hebrew Academy expects to refurbish this site in the very near future.
We wish them success in their effort.
