Shavei Israel – Belmonte prepares for Shabbat

Por: Shavei Israel – 12 SEP – Posted at 12:47h

The Jewish community of Belmonte, Portugal, knows how to celebrate Shabbat with gusto. Here are a few photos from a recent Friday before sundown with Shavei Israel’s emissary to the community, Rabbi Elisha Salas, who gives some of the men an impromptu lesson in tying the knots on their small prayer shawls.


And what’s cooking in the kitchen? Perhaps some homemade challah and chicken soup?
