Note: The birthday provided to this template is not
actually my birthday; it's merely the nearest
approximation of it, as my birthday varies from year
to year. In 2009 my birthday fell out on August 25-26.
In 2010 it will fall out on August 15-16.

Um... hi!

Yerushalmi is your friendly neighborhood oleh chadash living in Jerusalem with his beautiful wife, who thinks this whole geohashing thing is ridiculous but humors him with it because it's a way to get him out of the house. It took him over seven months, but he finally got himself a GPS and can reach some of those pesky field, forest, and desert hashes that keep landing just outside the Jerusalem city limits. He's also rather annoyed that the *one time* the hashpoint actually landed in Jerusalem in the past year, he missed it.


He is an editor and translator working on the main exhibit opening next year at the Israel Museum.

[edit] The Israeli Geohasher's Theme Song

קום והתהלך בארץ
בתרמיל ובמקל,
וודאי תפגוש בדרך
שוב את ארץ ישראל.
יחבקו אותך דרכיה
של הארץ הטובה,
היא תקרא אותך אליה
כמו אל ערש אהבה.

זאת אכן אותה הארץ.
זו אותה האדמה
ואותה פיסת הסלע
הנצרבת בחמה.
ומתחת לאספלט
לבניני הראוה,
מסתתרת המולדת
בישנית וענוה.

קום והתהלך בארץ
בתרמיל ובמקל,
וודאי תפגוש בדרך
שוב את ארץ ישראל.
יחבקו אותך דרכיה
של הארץ הטובה,
היא תקרא אותך אליה
כמו אל ערש אהבה.

וכרמי עצי הזית
ומסתור המעין,
עוד שומרים על חלומה
וחלומנו הישן.
וגגות אודמים על הר
וילדים על השבילים.
במקום שבו הלכנו
עם חגור ותרמילים.
