After spending a wonderful Succot in Israel, my wife, Aya, and I are continuing our journeys in Spain by exploring the colorful food markets as well as the rich Jewish heritage sites of Barcelona, Ávila and Toledo.

Ávila is a beautiful town in the autonomous community of Castile and León, and it was home to many Jews before the Inquisition. The Jews of Ávila were shop and workshop owners in one of the town’s most prestigious streets, now known as Calle de los Reyes Católicos, literally “the street of the Catholic kings,” which is quite ironic, in my humble opinion.
