El Salvador Wish List

Can you help the emerging Jewish community of Anousim in Armenia, El Salvador, find books and Jewish ritual objects? They observe Sephardic Orthodox practice and could use daily, weekly and high holy day prayer books and blessings after meals (preferably Spanish and Hebrew – some copies with transliteration). They also need tefillin and mezuzot and two copies of a Tikkun for Torah-readers (Hebrew only).  If you have access to these items, please contact Rabbi Aaron Rehberg (in Israel) at elsalvador <at> kulanu {dot}o rg
