I bought a special sake that the woman said is made for Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) to bring back home for Shabbat. It was amazing! I've never had anything like it! The price was definitely worth it.

My wife and I loved the Jewish Pizza, a dried fruit pastry which was still warm when we got our first bite. We came back a couple of days later, but unfortunately they had already closed. Would have loved to try other items.

architectural design frames apartments, bakeries,
shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the
