I have actually seen a suggestion >from the Post Office that oneAlthough the suggestion to place the zipcode to the left of the word
Jerusalem is very appropriate, your justification for it is not.
It is neither 'right' nor 'wrong' to write the zipcode to either side of
the destination locality: that position is just a matter of convention.
And in the same manner as the USA postal authorities have decided that
for USA addresses the postcode should be placed at the right of the
locality, in many European countries (but not in all of them) and in
Israel the code is written at the left side of the locality REGARDLESS
of the direction of the writing.
