Daniela Hayoum arrived at a Tel Aviv post office at 7 a.m. and took a number.
The line of people waiting for gas masks was long and Hayoum stepped away to run errands. She returned in the afternoon to find hundreds of Israelis crowding under a hot sun on the building’s wide steps, some holding umbrellas and others food.

Jerusalem - What the Israeli government is calling an “interim” arrangement to enable more non-Orthodox Jews to pray at Robinson’s Arch has received grudging support from Reform and Conservative leaders but not from Women of the Wall.
American-Israeli green entrepreneur Yosef Abramowitz failed in his bid to buy the bankrupt electric car company Better Place.
Abramowitz’s company, Green EV Operation, on Sunday could not make a monthly payment of $1 million to Better Place’s liquidator.
Last month Abramowitz, in partnership with the Association for the Advancement of Electric Transport in Israel, won a bid to buy Better Place’s Israeli infrastructure and intellectual property for about $11 million.
