"My mother carried only three mitzvoth; that is all that is expected of a Jewish woman. But in reality she could only carry two of the three.... The third mitzvah, immersion in the ritual bath once every month, she could not take with her."

Jewish Experience

"Each family recipe for gefilte fish, cholent, kreplach, chopped liver, kugel, latkes, matzo balls, or borscht carried a particular memory of survival from the Jewish communities of Russia, Poland, Germany, or Hungary - a heritage passed through generations of women."

Elizabeth Jameson,
University of Calgary
