Rabbi Moshe Danon or how Stolac became a significant city for the Jews

The character and work of Moshe Danon will be revived by Moshe Raphael Atias, known as Zeki-efendi, in the work “Sarajevo Megila”, written in Ladino, translated by Isak Samokovlija who made this great and valuable knowledge available to us. The tradition of pilgrimage to the tomb of Moshe Danon was also revived by Zeki-efendi, and it will be interrupted, unfortunately, by the Second World War. But after the complex has been restored, the tradition is coming back to life little by little. This is how the tomb of Moshe Danon becomes the only Jewish sanctuary in Europe, the second most important in the world after the Wailing Wall.
