When I was a kid, I loved being invited by my Jewish friends to take part in their holiday celebrations. It was so much fun participating in and learning about the traditions of another culture, and Yom Kippur, Hanukkah and Passover are among the holidays I remember most. At Passover, I was always endlessly jealous during lunchtime as I sat in our cafeteria eating whatever was being served that day, while my Jewish classmates ate from their brown bag lunches featuring a variety of Passover foods.
Many years later I found my husband and the love of my life, and guess what? He turned out to be Jewish! So I guess I was destined to keep enjoying these traditional foods after all. Look at this slideshow for a peek into what our family will be enjoying this year.
