Description
Like many American Jews, Elizabeth Ehrlich was ambivalent about her background. She identified with Jewish cultural attitudes, but not with Jewish institutions; she had sentimental memories of her ritually observant grandmothers, but formal religious practice was largely irrelevant to her life. In this warm, funny, moving, and immensely appetizing memoir, she describes how her attitudes evolved, and how she began to bring observance and tradition into her own home.The agent of change was Ehrlich's mother-in-law, Miriam. A Holocaust survivor, Miriam passionately carried out the traditions she had learned as a girl. Inspired to preserve a lost way of life'and also to ?build a floor? of values, connection, and history beneath her children's feet?Ehrlich begins cooking lessons with the indomitable Miriam. As Miriam cooks, she speaks of the past and wakes dormant memories and appetites in her skeptical daughter-in-law. With trepidation and a certain amount of backsliding, Ehrlich begins observing Sabbath and moves toward making her kitchen kosher. In the process, she gains a new appreciation of life's possibilities, choices, and limitations.
