tijuanaMexico, like the United Estates, is a “nation of immigrants.”

In the 1900s, Tijuana welcomed Jewish refugees fleeing wars, hate, and poverty in Europe, Asia and the Mideast.

Tijuana Jews, the story of the extended Artenstein family, has become a POCHO Rosh HaShana (New Year) tradition ever since we noticed rosh-ha-shana rhymed with Tijuana in 2012.

The Jewish year 5778 begins at sundown Wednesday, Septermber 20. We wish all who celebrate a happy, healthy, peaceful, loving, prosperous, and sweet New Year.

In Ladino — the hybrid Spanish-Hebrew language Jews spoke in Al Andaluz before the Inquisition — that’s ANYADA BUENA I DULSE!

OY! DON’T RUN AWAY SO FAST! HOW ABOUT SOME NICE KOSHER NACHOS AKA TOTOPOS DE GRIBEÑES CON GUACAMOLE?
