Le Kremlin et la cathedrale de l'Annonciation et la mosquée Kul Sharif














La tour Syuyumbike. Selon la legende, Kazan aurait ete mis sous siege suite au refus de la princesse Syuyumbike d'epouser le tsar Ivan. Pour sauver la ville, elle aurait accepte a condition de qu'une tour plus haute que toute autre mosque a Kazan soit construite en une semaine. Aussitot la tour complete, elle se serait donne la mort en se jetant du haut de celle-ci.







Then something incredible happened to me today.And if I hadn't taken a photo nobody would have believed me!
While driving from the kremlin suddenly I saw a big menorah and thought"if there is a menorah there is a synagogue" and yes it was a synagogue.
I went in and asked a man(lubavich)who is the Rabbi Ytzchak Gorelik if I may take a picture.He said "yes" and "where do you come from etc etc"When I said that my paternal ancestors came from Latvia he said"mine too and I have something interesting to show you".He came back with the book of the synagogues in Latvia,that his grand father wrote and I met his grand father at the synagogue of Riga in 1994....I said that I want to buy the book,that it's very precious for me.He said it's not for sale but purposed 100€ and he agreed.
It's just a miracle .He said there is no hasard in life and wrote it in hebrew on the book.I really think so....and I have a strange feeling but I am very very happy I found the book and met the rabbi.
