Coming Up: Yiddish Traditions





March-April were my favorite months growing up, as I loved spring, and spring brought me Passover.  My grandparents Pearl and Alex Rothbard made Passover special to me.   I loved opening the door for Elijah, and finding that the wine had indeed been drunk by a ghostly visitor.  Grandfather hid the matzoh under his chair.  I would search and search until finally I would find it in the last place I looked. April has been dedicated to Yiddish Stories on Tending Turnips and Yiddish Words on Words People Use.  I hope you enjoy.  Mozol Tov.  and of Course Shalom Alechiem, Gregory D. Rothbard
