“Oneg Sabbath,” the custom of holding social gatherings for discussing intellectual and literary topics on Saturday afternoon, initiated in Tel Aviv by the group around Chaim Nachman Bialik, was transplanted here.

The initiative was taken here by the leaders of the Mizrachi. the Orthodox Zionist organization. The gatherings, held under the traditional slogan of “Sabbath pleasure” are attracting wide attention.
