My Grandmother’s Recipes: Part 7, Strudel.

This Sunday we start celebrating a series of holidays commonly called The High Holidays. In Yiddish, we simply say Yontoivim – The Holidays,  and everybody understands which holidays are meant. That’s because there are four holidays that follow each other not only on the calendar, but also in meaning and significance. In this chapter, you will see the transition from Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement, to Sukkot and Simhat Torah (click for Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 8).

    1. Thank you so much, dear Michael! Hurricane bypassed us and went to the West coast of Florida, but we did have tropical storms for a couple of days, including the second day of Rosh Hashana. Rain is a blessing, and nobody is made of sugar, so we don’t melt.
