How It Works
What Does The Word
The most effective element that makes a neighborhood a neighborhood.
Bakkal is not just a halal or kosher food selling ethnic grocery store. The owner of the store is a person who advises the neighborhood kids to be smart and kind. Writes debts on a notebook based on trust, lends money when you need it.
Offers chocolate or candy to its customers on holidays, holds on to your house key to give it to another family member, listens to the news and Sunday games on an old radio, sells crooked plastic balls 🙂
Looks after your family as his own family.
