Cover from Israel!

Today I got a nice cover from Israel! The cover features a stamp commemorating the Jaffa Light. The stamp was issued on November 26, 2009 and is part of a series of three stamps commemorating the lighthouses in Israel. The Jaffa Light was used from 1865 until 1966 and is located on a hilltop by the old Jaffa port. While it is no longer operational, it is still sometimes used as a daytime navigational aid. Thanks Saujanya!
