Israeli Tax Season: This Week

Israeli Journalist Tsur Ehrlich published a poem in Makor Rishon two years ago that moved me enough to translate it last year. The Hebrew appears as an image below my adaptation. I have Ehrlich’s permission to post. 

Israeli Tax Season

One Week in Spring

Two Memorial Days

Accounting to balance the doubt:

How much it costs to maintain our own Home —

And how much it costs us without.
