Is Madonna putting down roots in the Holy Land? According to Israel’s Channel 10, the answer is a resounding maybe.

While the Kabbalah devotee was not actually seen looking at properties, she was photographed holding a white folder. What, if anything, does that reveal, you might ask?

Users of a Facebook page for Israeli Madonna fans wondering the very same thing blew up the shot and discovered that this wasn’t just any white folder, but a brochure for the Meier on Rothschild tower, a luxury housing development going up in Tel Aviv. Apartments in the 50-story building, designed by celebrity architect Richard Meier, have been selling for between for $1.4 and $47 million.

Madge last visited Israel in 2012, kicking off her MDNA tour at Ramat Gan stadium. During that trip she visited the Western Wall tunnels in Jerusalem and holed up in her hotel with teachers from Tel Aviv’s Kabbalah center. Looks like next time she might have more space for visitors–and since Meier on Rothschild has a pool, she won’t have to build one for her kids to swim in.
