Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Please excuse my ignorance. Is that a Yemenite Rabbi or a Yemeni Rabbi? The former would be a rabbi of a Yemenite sect of Judaism where the latter would be a rabbi from Yemen. I'm not familiar with all the sects of Judaism, but, would be interested to know the differences.
This in regards to yesterdays pic of the mule of donkey. Perhaps that would be a good substitute for your tractor. Families have used them on the farm to plow fields etc. for years??
I suspect either term could be used appropriately. Here's a wikipedia article on Yemenite Judaismhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yemenite_JewsJust a note: there's likely little difference in appearance between this Rabbi and any modern Rabbi wearing their tallit. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tallit) The beard might be slightly out of date.
Is that really an old radio in 1935? It seems like it's contemporary to the time. Early radios were built more like furniture, meant to last for a long time.pastperiodspress.com
Very interesting photo. Sort of an anachronism.
