My aunt sent me these pics yesterday of their Passover cedar. Passover is one of those holidays that I remember from childhood.... I used to always go to my best friend's house for the cedar because my parents weren't "practicing" Jews... Debi's dad was from Poland and even lived through the Holocaust as a boy- I remember the numbers tattooed on his arm.
My aunt and uncle in New Jersey keep the holidays and even do the Sabbath (though I don't know if they do it every week).... I have two cousins, Amanda and Abigail.. their husbands, David and Adam.. and each of them have two kids a piece, giving me four young "second" cousins! They're all super adorable!! So, here they are, celebrating the first night of Pesach at my aunt and uncle's.
