SHALOM there,

This is your friend Kaa reporting to you live from Israel!

Say, ever heard about the BABA SALY ?

The BABA SALLY was a great and famous Rabbi and a miracle maker of the the North African Jewry.

The BABA SALLY was born in Morroco and came to Israel. He died in Israel in the 1980's but his figure and the stories behind him are still revered today by many Israelis and other people.

Whenever I think of Israel and Israelis it reminds me of an old joke with the BABA SALY:

A man walks into a FALAFEL joint in Israel (FALAFEL is a traditional, and sometimes tasty, fast food of Israel's area of the world), well a man walks into a FALAFEL joint in Israel and asks the man behind the stand:

"Say is this FALAFEL Kosher?" (Kosher is the Jewish standards of food we can eat (KOSHER) and not eat (not KOSHER), for example: pork is not Kosher).

Then the man behind the stand makes an insulted face expression and tell back to the visitor:

"Sure it is, look here I have a big photo of the BABA SALY hanging on the wall behind me!"

To this the visitor replied:

"I would rather see there on the wall a photo of you and have the BABA SALY make me my FALAFEL!"

So next time someone from (or for) Israel try to talk to you with photos you had better keep an eye on the falafel he (or she) is trying to sell you!

Until later
