Meeting with Majesty

C.S. Teitelbaum

On Rosh Hashanah, we stand before Hashem and proclaim His sovereignty over the world. It is an awe-filled moment, hard to fully appreciate. It helps, though, if one has actually met a living monarch — a king or a queen. Jr. spoke to people who have met with a monarch, giving us a glimpse into modern-day majesty.

C.S. Teitelbaum

It’s All from Shamayim

Arik Chamami as told to C.B. Lieber

What do we sell at Achim Chamami? Spices, nuts, dried fruit, beans and legumes, coffee beans, freshly roasted peanuts, even dried hot peppers. It’s all here, waiting in bins and bags for you to take home. We’ve been in the shuk for 15 years
