Only in Israel (I think)
Walking up (quickly) to catch the bus to Bar Ilan, I passed the above vending machine. It doesn't sell soft drinks or food. It sells Torah. More specifically, the Meorot Daf HaYomi people have started an intiative called ותן חלקנו , which provides a modicum of Torah study (Humash, Mishna, Gemora, Halakha, Hagut) divided into days, in a pocket sized book. This vending machine makes the week's learning available to travellers in a rush (like the photgrapher who was running and got a fuzzy picture).
I think it's cool.
Since I was rushing, the picture came out a little fuzzy.
