Some have quipped that there is no English-language equivalent of bon appetit, because British food is so uninspiring.Would it follow that there is no English – or, indeed, Hebrew – word for firgun because we are simply not adept at giving each other a congratulatory pat on the back? Whatever the answer, a bunch of young Jerusalem entrepreneurs have set about making sure that if we do harbor positive feelings and thoughts about someone, we can jolly well let them know. Next Friday, July 17, marks International Firgun Day – the brainchild of voluntary umbrella body Made in JLM, which connects and provides resources for the start-up ecosystem in Jerusalem. Founded in 2012 by Hanan Brand, Roy Munin and Uriel Shuraki, Made in JLM has a database that incorporates over 300 Jerusalem start-up companies from the biotech, Internet, media and digital gaming fields.
