Rabbi Pinto’s miracles
(Page 2 - Previous Page)When I was there on a recent Shabbat, the shul was packed. Call me a cynic, but if you taste this dafina, the Moroccan version of cholent, you can't help thinking that this hot, spicy stew might have something to do with the Pinto miracle.
As Maurice and I walked back on Pico, he said something I haven't often heard said about a shul: If the Pinto Center stays just the way it is and doesn't grow, that would be OK with him. In fact, it would be a continuation of the miracle.
If the word ever gets out on his dafina, he might have a little problem on his hands.
