*Songe d'Israel*

Welcome to Mere Rosalie's establishment. The walls are papered in a rose and gold print, and candles burn steadily in sconces and on table tops. Deep, comfortable chairs are grouped near the fireplace and day or night someone is bound to be seated there, nursing a drink or engaged in conversation. Along the long wall to the left are heavy oaken benches where scholars of all ages sit and discuss Talmud late into the evening. Not everyone is scholarly, though. Some come to drink, some to eat Mere Rosalie's delicious food, and some just enjoy the communal warmth.
