Save the Pool

Haim Watzman

I haven’t been blogging because I’m busy saving the Jerusalem Pool. This venerable and unique South Jerusalem facility is in danger of being closed down and turned into a parking lot by a developer.

I work out at the pool daily and it’s been an inspiration to me as a writer, too (see. for example, “Pioneer in the Swim”).

I’ll write more extensively next week about the battle being waged by the Action Committee to Save the Jerusalem Pool. In the meantime, I urge any of you who have visited and value the pool to join our e-mail list by writing to and visit our Facebook page.
