Or Yehuda Town Squares

The mayor of Or Yehuda changed the face of the city by introducing new, uniquely aesthetic roundabouts : Tacky, Las Vegas hotel courtyards meet life-size recreations of country life. It's a sight you simply couldn’t miss. Filming the squares at night shows off the roundabouts’ elaborate lighting design, inviting an expressive soundtrack. All this against the backdrop of Or Yehuda night life – joyriders encircling the roundabouts pumping out music, similar to a mating ritual in nature. The roundabouts give Or Yehuda a new, bold front in the face its residents harsh day-to-day life; as though the city underwent plastic surgery, crass yet at the same time revitalizing.
