All around - a civilized party. Rothschild Avenue was a bit like La Rambla in Barcelona (minus the sleeze).
Friendly Israel Police on their new scooters, anda mobile police station, consisting of a slim metal stand with bright blue light at its top, and two policemen standing next to it.
Don't ask me why the buildings were leaning at 2:00am!
Takeout sushi bar. For some reason Santa is the master of ceremony on New Year's Eve in Israel.
Two Israeli guys, just back from a long stay in India, hopelessly trying to merge back into the local existence.
Pedestrians on Rothschild Ave
City sponsored don't drink and drive walking messengers.
Voluntary, citizen-operated, rave station on wheels.
Reb Nahman's would let a party pass by, and joined in with a large truck pumping mega decibels of gangnam style to new lyrics.

Netanyahu: We're building a digital Iron Dome
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Israel is building a "digital Iron Dome," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the opening ceremony of a new national program to train young people for cyberwarfare Tuesday.
"Israel's vital systems are under attack from Iran and other elements. This will only increase as we enter the digital age," Netanyahu stressed, speaking at the Ashkelon Academic College.
"We are bolstering our ability to deal with these threats via the Israel National Cyber Bureau (INCB) that we established," the prime minister added.
"To the outstanding pupils that are studying in the special program, I say: 'You are the future interceptors for the State of Israel.' We are one of the world's leaders in the field of cybernetics and we must maintain this position; therefore, we will continue to cultivate the generation of the future," he concluded.
Also speaking at the event, INCB head Dr. Eviatar Matania said that Israel needs and intends to improve its methods of operation, "This program is an example of the actions that we are advancing in the field of cybernetics in order to develop the high-quality human capital in the State of Israel."
