How could a quality Jewish bookstore be more dangerous than gambling? Book-lovers, please think for a minute --spending, spending, spending! But on the other hand, in gambling you loose, when buying quality Judaica you definitely win. But please stay "sober "a little bit, if you can! 

The prestigious Pomeranz bookstore is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year. In the last two decades this bookshop in downtown Jerusalem has become the Gan Eden of Judaica lovers thanks to its dedicated owner, friendly staff and unique collection. 

In today's show we will get to know the owner and manager Mr. Michael Pomeranz. We will talk about love of books, devotion, the hard work, small details and the laws of the book market. And last but not least, why this place is so special.
