Topic Wiki

Posting Rules:
-Post your own pictures that you took yourself.
-Only the correct guesser gets to post a picture, pictures posted by non-winners will be deleted.
-If 2 hours have passed since the winner was crowned and no image was posted anyone may post a picture.
-The correct guess must include the city name, or in the case of a small island the island name is acceptable.
-We're going on the honor system here, but you can't use a reverse image search to find out where a picture is.
Avoid the temptation and let's try to make this a fair and fun game :D
-If nobody figures out where the location is after an hour or so the original poster of the picture should start giving clues or can post another picture from the same city until its correctly guessed.
-All Players may not guess again until either 5 mins has passed or until another player guesses.

Close enough.

1st pic is in Hilo's Wednesday market.
2nd/3rd is in Waipio valley.

You're up.
The yalmuka was a dead giveaway.

And then I recognized the valley :)

No.

Next hint, a famous talmudic and halachik commentator is buried here, but I don't know of almost anyone else that has been there to visit.

I was thinking Poznan as soon as you posted it originally :)

If I would have to guess, I would say that those are the yarmulkas sold by the rabbi on TBI

Because you know where I went for Pesach?

Your up.

FTR Rabbi Akiva Eiger is buried there in the backyard of an apartment building. Need to be buzzed in by someone that lives there.

I'm surprised no organization has done anything to restore it.

pretty much.

I basically went over your TR with a fine-tooth comb when you posted your Beachwood picture do it was fairly fresh in my memory. I thought it might be the R' Akiva Eiger building but I wasn't sure...

Regardless, I'll pass. It's up for grabs.

Well not many people go to visit, so clearly not much demand. A similar point is the Ponovich yeshiva building is now a cafe/bakery. You'd think someone would buy it and make it something besides a non-kosher bakery...

pretty much.
