The Jerusalem Ethos
From an article about the Jerusalem Marathon in Haaretz by Yair Ettinger: "[It's h]ard to get used to the inspiring and moving sight of men and women fighting the forces of nature, still trying to reach the finishing line six hours after the Marathon started...Jerusalemites cheer you on with cries of 'Bravo!' and 'Well done!' While in Tel Aviv they cheer you on by saying, 'Go on, faster!'"
