In Jerusalem (and several other Israeli cities) there is a “kaf-tet be-November” (November 29) street. It is not uncommon for a street to be named after an important date in such a history-conscious country, but unusual for the Gregorian (rather than the Hebrew) date to be employed.
November 29, 1947 was of course the date on which the UN voted to partition the British Mandate of “Palestine” into a Jewish and an Arab state.
Below Suzy Eban (the widow of former UN ambassador and foreign minister Abba Eban) reminisces about the vote, accompanied by some archive video.
Here you will find an interview with Abba Eban himself.
