This story of a Jewish child growing up in Boston tells of the author's parents coming to America from the Ukraine in 1922, the family hardships during the Great Depression and the impact of World War II as they experienced these events. This book is an historic tale of Jewish culture, Yiddish humor and food (recipes are included) and how food bonded families together during the 1930's-1950's. Interwoven throughout the book are issues of social justice, equality and the environment in our world today. For one who wants a personal and entertaining look into the lives and experiences of a Jewish immigrant family in the middle half of the twentieth century, this book is a great read!
