Rissani Part IV – November 10

My friend at the hotel didn’t think I would find what I was looking for.

Did you find it? He asked.
Yes. I said.
Really?
I showed him my pictures and he was visibly impressed.

Baba Sali – November 10

No trip to Rissani is complete with out a trip to the house of the Baba Sali, the famous Rabbi Yisrael AbuHatzeira. His house is still preserved and well known. Folks make pilgrimage to this site. It was fascinating to see his house. It was surprisingly normal and humbling. I was also shown the well where he drew water from which was housed nearby.
