Passover Cuisine—Not Just Small Potatoes

...in which a Rabbi explains the differences of Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews in the foods they eat.

by Rabbi Jo David

Editor's Note: Rabbi Jo David was introduced to me by Prof. Steve Holzinger. She has a particular knack for explaining the many customs of the Jewish religion, things which many non-Jews like us can find unfamiliar and mysterious. Having been totally perplexed by the differences in Ashkenazic and Sephardic Jews and their origins, I asked her to give us a primer on the ways these two cultures of the same religion treat the Passover seder. Her response brings both personal experience and educated research into play, broadening our understanding of the Jewish faith and culinary customs. —KH
