The city of Prague hosted a series of events to commemorate the 400th yahrtzeit of the Maharal, Rabbi Yehudah Loew (1520–1609).
At the two week-long street fair in the old city, Chabad of the Czech Republic operated a couple of stands and booths for the thousands of Jews visiting.
Rabbi Manis Barash and his staff offered the men to lay Tefillin and say a prayer. They also sold Jewish books, Judaica and other memorabilia.
But their most popular booth was the Kosher stand selling fresh and tasty Jewish food.
On Elul 18, the birthday of the Baal Shem Tov and Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, a large Farbrengen took place at the Chabad House.
The crowd was addressed by Rabbi Baras, Rabbi Meir Berkowitz and Shmuel Mica, the Israeli Consul to the city.
The next morning, after Shacharis prayer at Chabad, a group went to visit the tomb of the Maharal of Prague, a Torah scholar and the creator of the mighty Golem.
