SAN DIEGO–Our inveterate Jewish license plate scout Melanie Rubin didn’t let a thing like water stop her search for finding Jewish vehicles everywhere.
Rubin spotted a boat named “Chavala”–reminiscent of the affectionate way in Fiddler on the Roof that Tevye referred to his daughter, Chava. She sent us the photo, asserting: “This is like a license plate.”
We agree, and we’ll add it to the online collection.
LA JOLLA, California — Our Jewish license plate sleuth Melanie Rubin has found another Jewish license plate, Macabbi, for our online collection. The plate refers to the Jewish athletic games in which athletes from around the world compete in Israel.
SAN DIEGO — Sandi Masori of Balloon Utopia spotted this license plate–
which in Hebrew means one redhead. Judging by the license plate frame, it’s one redhead with bladder trouble.
SAN DIEGO–Our favorite license plate sleuth, Melanie Rubin, spotted this one, translating from English, Hebrew and some license plate-ese to Greater Good. Given the fact that the owner is a Boston Red Sox fan, we assume that refers to first baseman Kevin Youkilis improving his already formidable batting performance each season.

SAN DIEGO–The latest acquisition in Melanie Rubin’s collection of license plates with Jewish meaning is one that probably is named for a Hannah whose surname begins with a P. However, we look to the biblical roots of Hannah’s first name, remembering that Hannah was the woman who told the priest Eli how unhappy she was being childless and that if she only had a child, she would dedicate his life to the service of God. She subsequently did have a son, who became the prophet Samuel.
