  3. B"H

    Until I myself went to the grave of the Baba Sali last August, I didn't know the custom.

    What people do is going up to the burning fire and throwing in small Kvitlach. Meaning, people write wishes for well - being etc. on a piece of paper and throw it into the fire. It really looks like a Sephardi custom.
    This way they hope that the wish may come true.

    Actually I found it quite an interesting custom.
