After classes were over for the day I headed to the city center to a lovely book shop called...
... yes you (tried) to read correctly, its Pomeranz!
On first view already promising an amazing experience, the moment I stepped inside, I knew this will be a place I will be returning to more often! I was there to buy Machzorim for the upcoming high holidays, and I was on the lookout for the Koren Machzor with translation and commentary by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. I found a small pocket hard cover edition. That would be not so heavy to hold during the long services of the High Holidays. Some of you know already, I very much like the typeface of the Koren AND I love Rabbi Sacks' commentary on everything! for 200 shekel for 2 Machzorim, I knew this is a good buy and they will serve me some good years.
There were SO MANY books I immidiately wanted to buy, but I knew this had to wait, and after all, I could always come back and read them in the store ;) One thing I knew, I felt like a piece of at home of my soul was in that bookstore. I love books and I love Judaism, so what better place to be than in a bookstore in Jerusalem!
