Every Shabbat Rabbi Anava and his wife host huge Shabbat meals at the Be’er Miriam learning center in Tzfat, that serves the local community and thousands of visitors from all around the world that come to visit Tzfat and experience a REAL Shabbat in the holy land.On an average Shabbat we provide anywhere between 80-300 servings through out the three meals. The meals include healthy home made cooking, wine and a unique atmosphere you can not even price! A large amount of our guest are poor people, single mothers and many other people in need of a good meal and some caring with good company !
And Moses said, Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field - Shemot (Exodus) Chapter 16/25.An average Shabbat (Sometimes one meal and sometimes three meals) costs anywhere between $1000 – $2500 per Shabbat! Since many participate in the cost, we only calculate $1000 per Shabbat totalling $50,000 per year, even though it is MUCH more than that as we host Rosh Chodesh meals every month. Holiday meals , Pruim and Chanuka parties, Pesach Seder night and MUCH more! Please note that our expenses for these meals are MUCH more than $50,000. In the past year we spent $126,000 on food! This is the minimum amount we need to secure the operation of the Shabbat meals
