Café Shi­ra book cover

“A one-of-a-kind book about a one-of-a-kind busi­ness in a one-of-a-kind city, Café Shi­ra presents a nuanced, humor­ous, and fas­ci­nat­ing pic­ture of human­i­ty set in a renowned café in the heart of Jerusalem. . . . Café Shi­ra is a point­ed and unusu­al look at the ways peo­ple live their lives. What shows on the sur­face can be a hint to, or a com­plete mis­di­rec­tion of, the emo­tions, thoughts, and dreams that oth­ers can­not see.”—Michal Hoschan­der Malen, Jew­ish Book Coun­cil
