some say­ings of ר‘משבצונה“ל

For many years I have worked hard, and strug­gled with mas­ter­ing virtuous. Now, in addi­tion, I’m work­ing on becom­ing more virtual.
This is an expres­sion of that effort.

All pho­tographs are by Mark Hurvitz unless they are obvi­ously not (or credit oth­er­wise is given).

The pho­tos in the ban­ner at the top (only a shal­low sliver of a much larger photo) are either from our home or our trav­els and are offered for their beauty alone (though a brain-teaser for me: “Where was that?”).

The open­ing scene in MR. SATURDAY NIGHT (about an aging Jew­ish come­dian try­ing to make a come­back) has many shots of authen­tic Jew­ish food. Some of the plot revolves around Jew­ish food !

What is “authen­tic” Jew­ish food?

I can think of:

  • matzah
  • chal­lah
    (only true chal­lah (i.e. bread from which “chal­lah is taken”))
  • charoset
  • choe­lent
  • I learned from some Pol­ish Catholics that gefilete fish is an authen­tic Jew­ish food. A Pol­ish cook­book has a recipe for “Fish the Jew­ish Way” which is gefilte fish and is specif­i­cally eaten on Christmas!

    What else? What deter­mines that a par­tic­u­lar food is “Jewish”?
