Twenty years ago, journalist David Ehrlich had the idea of setting up a funky bookstore in a historic courtyard in downtown Jerusalem’s Nahalat Shiva neighborhood.“I thought perhaps a little corner with coffee. Next thing I know, I had a restaurant with some books,” quips the 55-year-old founder of Tmol Shilshom at a Roaring ’20s-style retro party last month celebrating the café’s two decades of delicious dairy food.
