Photo Friday: In the Days of Your Youth

Young Israelis in a Hanukkah torch race, December 27, 1959 (Photo: Moshe Pridan/GPO)

"Remember your Creator
    in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
    and the years approach..."
(Ecclesiastes 12:1)

In this picture taken during Hanukkah in 1959, members of Israel's "Young Maccabees" take part in a "torch race" during the Festival of Lights. A Happy Hanukkah to all, beginning this Sunday evening. Shabbat shalom, friends.
