Remember your first time visiting Israel? (All of you lucky ducks reading this who actually live in Israel—well, all I can say is, I hope you realize how fortunate you are!) Remember how your eyes widened at the sight of Jews of every type and stripe walking the streets of Me’ah She’arim? Remember how your heart was warmed when you witnessed the exquisite acts of chessed so part and parcel of the Holy Land? Remember the many colorful—and special—characters you met, at the Kosel, at the makolet, and while on buses, which filled you with such wonder and awe?
Jerusalem Recycled evokes all this nostalgia and so many other emotions. Beautifully written by Rebbetzin Sheindel Weinbach, this book tells the true tales of an amazing chessed apparatus that has burgeoned and branched out all over Israel—namely, Rebbetzin Weinbach’s clothing gemach. The stories in this book are incredible as they are of the “only in Israel” variety; their starring characters are the unforgettable, one-of-a-kind Yidden for which Eretz Yisrael is so famous.
Take a peek at the secret treasure housed in the distinguished neighborhoods of Mattersdorf and Geulah. Meet the many givers and takers; those in need of a black shirt for a performance, or a veil for a poverty-stricken kallah; people needing to give away blood pressure cuffs and wool-lined winter shoes, and people needing to receive those very same items… You’ll find yourself inspired, amused, and often goose-bump-covered over and over again!
