A picture caption with an article on Tuesday about modern Israeli identity misidentified a cafe in Haifa. It is Rai, not Fattoush. Both are known for welcoming Jews and Arabs.

An article on Monday about a shortage of sanitation workers in U.S. cities misstated the recent pay increases for some sanitation workers in Dallas.

The article also misstated the previous base pay rate for truck drivers employed by the city. It was $16.50 an hour, not $12.28 an hour.

Because of an editing error, an article on Wednesday about the second New York City mayoral debate described incorrectly a 19th-century opera referenced by Curtis Sliwa. Pagliacci is the name of the opera and means “clowns” in Italian; it is not the name of a character in the opera.

An article on Wednesday about possible replacements for Mark Zuckerberg as the chief executive of Facebook misstated the given name of Facebook’s next chief technology officer. He is Andrew Bosworth, not Adam.
An obituary on Oct. 19 about the former secretary of state and national security adviser Colin L. Powell misspelled the given name of a former defense secretary for whom he had been senior military assistant. He was Caspar Weinberger, not Casper.
