Report: Street in Lod Almost Named After Bank


The naming of a street after Bank Hamizrahi-Tefahot in Lod, southeast of Tel Aviv, was cancelled Thursday, about an hour before the dedication ceremony, according to Channel 10 Television.

Mayor Ya'ir Revivo explained that there was harsh public criticism of the proposal, which centered on what critics called the takeover of public space by commercial concerns.
