Coming back to the abuse of the water basin. Many citizens including moderate Jews regard splashing children as a way to fill the square with new life. With the consent of the parents, a friend of mine took the following photo.
The scene reminds me of a song made popular by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder:
Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord, why don't we?
Yes, why don’t we?
