The Day After

A new kidney. Crushing news. Conversion. We hear a lot about events that change the trajectory of one’s life. But what happens the day after? When the drama or trauma has somewhat subsided and a new day dawns, what is it like to wake up in an altered world?
Eleven people share the emotions.

“Chacham Ovadiah was a man of greatness who drew people from far and near. But to me, he was my brother.” Esther Halevi, youngest sibling of Chacham Ovadiah Yosef, shares her memories of growing up in a different world and of family bonds that transcended all differences.

Jews not only like eating, we like talking about food, thinking about food, writing about food. We can make metaphors out of meat, take mussar from minestrone, find meaning in macaroni. In fact, it’s possible that the only thing that’s better than eating a good kosher meal is… schmoozing about one.
So put the tablecloth on, lay out the silverware, place a napkin in your lap, and join us for some culinary tales. Bon appétit!
