Dobush from Kfar Aza sent me this cancellation, with the Hebrew words of our national hymn Hatikvah (the Hope) arranged in the shape of the Star of David. It appeared yesterday and it is very similar to a stamp by Jennie Gottschalk, which I showed to the Israeli Postal Authorities about half a year ago. Which proves that good ideas never get lost!
Dobush from Kfar Aza sent me this Hatikvah (the Hope) postage Stamp, which was issued yesterday in Israel. About half a year ago Jennie Gottschalk and me suggested to the Israeli Postal Authorities a stamp in the shape of the Star of David (with the words of our national hymn in micrographic letters in the shape of balloons) for next Independence Day. They refused our suggestion, but they made the idea come true without us, and I'm happy to see my dream materializing.
