I was in Bank Leumi on Tzomet Bankim (banking corner) in Talpiot this week waiting to see a bank officer when I looked up and thought I saw a donkey on the other side of the bank's window. I popped up and went outside to get a closer look.
There standing right outside Bank Leumi on busy
Derech Hebron in the middle of Jerusalem was a saddled donkey waiting for its master. Folks passed by the donkey as if it were the most normal thing in the world. No one, except me, even took a second glance.
I snapped a few pictures and went back inside. There was the donkey's owner making his deposits. He completed his business, and then rode off into the sunset.
Boy, you don't see that outside the bank in Manhattan, that's for sure.
