From Holon With Love

To say that Tel Aviv-Jaffa's southern neighbor is overshadowed is a gross understatement. A new exhibit, which includes love notes from the Israeli city's second mayor, seeks to change that.

Fifteen years ago, somebody threw away the personal archive of Chaim Kugel (1897–1953), Holon's first mayor. Some of the papers, which had been thrown out onto the street, made their way to the Jaffa flea market. Others vanished. But others reached Yaniv Pechter, 35, a teacher of history, civics and Bible and a member of the Holon city council.
