L’shanah tovah! Happy New Year to all of my Jewish friends and family. The year 5775 – a palindrome. I think that’s the only reason I remembered the year!!
Tonight, 25 of us gathered at Irving’s Jewish Deli to celebrate the New Year with our family. My aunt is Jewish and we celebrate with her every year. It is always a celebration when we all get together, and this year, I think there were less Jewish family members at the Rosh Hashanah dinner than there were “non-Jews.”
Among the regular menu items, all the traditional foods were served; challah, potato pancakes, Kahska Varnishka, mushroom barley, matzoh ball soup, noodle keugel…more food than we could eat! Not all my favorites, but lots to pick at!
The best part of it all, like any of our family celebrations, was getting together with everyone. We all live so close, yet our busy schedules keep us from doing things like this. With all of the different religions and holidays our family celebrates, I am glad there are lots of them because that is what always brings us all together. ❤
