Last week’s “Question of the Week” was: “Why is My Family Insulted by My Kosher Diet?”
Going kosher can be such a touchy subject with relatives that someone, Azriela Jaffe, wrote a whole book about it: What Do You Mean, You Can’t Eat in My Home?: A Guide to How Newly Observant Jews and Their Less Observant Relatives Can Still Get Along”!
Let’s be honest, it is a very rare case that a woman falls asleep with a Big Mac in her hand and wakes up with a kosher kitchen. The entire transformation is a process that happens over time. For some it can be a few months and for others it takes years. However, one thing that we all share is that “in between” phase. That time when we know in our heart of hearts that we shouldn’t eat the non-kosher steak but it is just so unbelievably tempting!
