During the first years of austerity in Israel, a big sporting event was held. The players who arrived from abroad were to be hosted in the best conditions. Songs were composed and a new stadium was built. This picture was taken by Rudi at the opening ceremony of that day. The Maccabiah Games, showcasing the various inspirations that came into play in their production. The Torch Bearer, rising on top of the Palm arbor was the runner Yehuda Gabay, bringing the flaming rod straight from Modi'in. His upright stand in front of a monumental JNF poster is a direct extension of the ancient Olympic tradition and maybe also to bring some semblance of peace to the suffering jewish people.

The plexiglass has a glossy effect which can be enhanced when located near a window or lighting.
