For years, tour guides brought groups to the market neighborhood of Ohel Moshe and stopped behind its synagogue. “Back in the old days,” they would reveal, “neighborhood residents baked their dinners in a communal oven.” The guide would point at a spot on the wall. “The oven was here, behind the synagogue. Housewives prepared the raw materials, wrote their names on the pots and pans, and brought them to the oven before Shabbat. The fragrance of the dishes baking in the oven drove worshipers crazy during prayers.”

Then one day, not long ago, the director of the community center that stands right behind the synagogue decided to make life easier for the tour guides.
