Chapter: Creation / Shalom Israel
Title pages of Jerusalem Post and HaAretz
On 22 March 2013, the ad with theBlossom of Shalom of the Jerusalem Friedensmal appeared on the front pages of the Jerusalem Post and HaAretz. It was in Jerusalem that it was first publicly presented. I was in Safed in Israel at the time and Jewish friends living there surprised me with the newspaper (image). The ad appeared when US President Obama visited the state of Israel before Passover. Internationally, the ad appeared full-page on the back of the title pages. I had not expected this incredible size of the ad, with the weight and placement on the front pages, but with a 3 - 5 cm ad somewhere in the middle of a rather thick newspaper. The joy was great and the gratitude for this perception!
