Google Street ViewsMatt McGee noticed that Google Maps has added Street Views to Israel after a long long wait and a lot of controversy.

Israel is very big into security, so having street views was/is a concern for them. But the tourism benefit, outweighs the potential security risks.

I go to Israel once a year to run SMX Israel and to visit family. I also spent a school year there. So scanning through the Street View images brings things back for me.

I spent part of my school year in a school on this street, no - not the Brisk Yeshiva.
