Remembering Robbie Weiss, z”l

There are most definitely people who knew Robbie longer, better, deeper than I did. His family can tell stories of growing up with Robbie; Robbie as a big brother, a beloved uncle and even how devoted a son he was. There are those who were his friends for 10, 20, 30 and 40+ years with many a tale

Easy, Tasty and Quick Tomato Soup

As the colder air sets in we are all more receptive and anxious for a hot bowl of soup at the end of the day. Recently I came upon an old recipe that takes no time to prepare and tastes really yummy. It can be made in advance or within an hour prior to serving. I find that the longer it sits, the thicker and more tasteful it gets.

There Is No Simcha Without Good Wine

Sukkot, along with Simchat Torah, is the holiday that most symbolizes and highlights the importance of serving God and following his Torah with joy. Our sages write that wine causes the heart of man to rejoice. Sukkot and Simchat Torah include multiple celebratory meals, inside and outside the
