Our fondest memories of our youths were the holidays, especially the spirituality of the Passover Seder. Our children tell us we achieved our goal of recreating those memories for them.
Another memory was the ever present pushka in my home in New Orleans. And now Tzedakah is just a way of life. God blessed us with so much for which to be thankful that we have always tried to help others. We believe we were put here for a purpose.
Our wishes for this community are for teens to be better prepared for the secular world in which their Jewish identities could come into question. We need to help them keep the straight paths and prevent assimilation. We pray they will always have the same fond memories of their family holidays and remain true to their heritage.
