Graffiti In Israel?

IMG_2965Boker tove,

Well… some people learn Hebrew by touring Tel-Aviv and reading what’s written on the walls. I wish I had taken more photos to virtually teaching some Hebrew. For now enjoy this one:

Ah-tah tzah-reekh ah-ha-va kha-da-sha?   אתה צריך אהבה חדשה? Do you (male. singular) need a new love?

If the writing on the wall would have addressed a woman it would say: Aht tz’ree-kha ah-ha-va  kha-da-sha?

Can you write back to me, forming sentences with the verb ‘need’?

And can you read what it says next to that statement?  The Israeli humor.
