This a real interesting piece of news that I can’t wait to share with you all. My friend and best artist, Moises Bentata, have decided to have a permanent exhibition of his art in Toledo. The place chosen to fit his so special art pieces could not be more suitable as the the will be shown in the cellar of a today’s very well located Antiques Store of the Jewish Quarter. This cellar is the remaining of a 1391’s called Sopher Synagogue that we know for records that was destroyed in the first pogrom that took place in Toledo during that year.
I wish all the best to Moises and kindly invite to you all to visit his new Gallery in Toledo.
