How We Rosh Hashana
Every year (or so) it seems as though the guest count at our Rosh Hashana dinner grows. August 29th we welcomed the newest member of our team, Baby Dylan.
I don't always have the opportunity to join my Canadian family for the Jewish holidays, but with the recent arrival of my niece I wasn't missing this dinner for the world.
My Boobie Frieda, 93 years old, is still hosting the Jewish holiday dinners. With my NYC family added to the table we're at 17 people. Luckily Boobie has a couple of gals in her life who work behind the scenes to pull this all off flawlessly.
After spending hours shadowing Boobie in the kitchen, her secret recipes have been perfected and table set beautifully.
Tonight's dinner also went off without a hitch thanks to Aunt Debi. Deb prepared the most beautiful desserts (I mean rose apple tarts?? C'mon!), strudel, kugel, fruit salad, potato salad, cookies........(the list goes on) and she was the woman behind the camera tonight capturing it all.
There's nothing more important to me in life then my family and the fact that I can live in a different country but still share in these memories every now and then, is priceless.
From my family to yours...L'Shana Tova. Hope it is a happy, healthy and sweet new year!
