It was an absolute honor and pleasure for Rabbanit Devorah Halevy and I to spend time in the hills of Jerusalem at the home of our dear friends, Professor Zvi Zohar and his wife Avigayil.
We sat in their beautiful garden, eating fruits that the Zohar’s grow on the Land, and discussing issues sorrounding the Jewish community at large and the Shiviti community in particular.
Professor Zohar, or Hacham Zvi as we call him, is perhaps the generations most renowned expert on Sephardic Judaism. If not for his foundational work and research in the field, we would not have much of what we are blessed with today.
Stay tuned for details about their upcoming visit to Kehillat Shaar HaShamayim, b’ezrat Hashem!
