So I saw on Jewpanese Facebook page a story about a Japanese man and a Jewish grandmother. It’s always reassuring to see stories of people accepting an expanding personal world inside our increasingly shrinking one. While many of the Jewpanese posts on this blog are aimed at a particular and small group, they are, in fact, metaphor for the reality of life on our planet. Plus, cooking stories are cool. Alas, for me, blintzes remain as difficult as latkes. My one saving grace is challah.
