Which street?

The city’s committee for street and square names recently decided upon women to be added to the city’s sites – two writers and a judge are among those who lived here and whose deeds justified their remembrance. Supreme Court justice and state comptroller Miriam Ben-Porat, poet and Israel Prize laureate Miriam Yalan-Shteklis and writer Dvora Omer will have streets or a square in their name. In addition, a request to right a wrong was rejected, and the mistaken name will remain. Ein Yael, a popular site for outdoor activities, will not be revised to “Ein Eyal,” its proper name, due to concern expressed by committee members that this could confuse the public.
