Plus the surprising Jewish history of Kobe
A fascinating read, thank you Ruth. It's always interesting for me to read about your culture and traditions, especially the ones that involve food! I hope you had a wonderful time with your son and daughter-in-law too.
Ruth, as always, loved your story about your most recent trip to Japan and learned something new about Jews in Japan. So glad you had the opportunity to visit with your son and daughter-in-law. Hope to see you soon. Thanks
wow. what a cool experience!
Ruth what a gift to visit your son and share such a beautiful experience with us, all that history was so interesting I’m reading the article again. I have always wanted to travel to Japan .
Enjoy the blessings of Passover,
I love learning new things and this was by far one of the most interesting and unexpected. Thank you, as always, for sharing your wonderful experience. Happy Passover to you and Jeff! ❤
Oh, this is so good, Ruth! And, fascinating history. Loved you traveling with the Challah. Wishing you and your family near and far Happy Passover! ❤️
Fascinating. Who knew. Too bad you couldn't have stayed dor the seder.
Happy Holiday/s to ya Ruth! Loved reading this newsletter! Interesting info on the Jewish culture in Kobe!
Who knew?! Next time you’ll pack some matzos too!!
Loved your article, Ruth. Miss our passovers together from long ago. This year in Boston with grandbaby. Next year ??? Jerusalem? California? Japan?
So interesting. I wonder if Rabbi Vishedsky is still affiliated with Chabad? If not, that experience will still have helped him with community building. I know that it's hard to keep kosher in large parts of America, so I'm impressed he's able to do so in Japan.
What a fascinating history Ruth! I never would have guessed that the Japanese, allies of the Germans, provided safe haven for Jewish refugees. Thank you for sharing.
