Is it because of bad journalism?
Or has it something to do ‘with the Jews’ – after all Richard Zimler’s bestselling novel The Last Kabbalist was initially rejected by 24 American publishers before it got published.
Maybe it’s a combination – or a coincidence.
Anyway – since I read Gil Zohar’s Lisbon story in The Jerusalem Post and after having had lots of our jewish friends visiting us I have been cruising around Lisbon on my bike and checking out all of the Jewish sights, monuments and kosher shops. If you are interested I have mapped them with relevant links in the Google map below.
