Article TItle: YouTube Passes Along Tradition – or “Feed Me Bubbe”
Article By: Catherine
In every culture, since the days of campfires in cave dwellings, there has been a tradition of passing along knowledge by story telling. Along with the story telling might be a demonstration on how it is done. It is years of experience passed along by elders and rich with wisdom.
I know that the master story teller in our family is my grandfather, who has farmed all his life. To this day, he still maintains a vegetable garden along the sunny side of his house. How he knows when to plant is not by what the text books, almanacs or weather forecasts say. He will tell you and show you that it is by the feel of a spade-full of dirt. He can tell when he has the bit of dug up garden soil in his hands. It is how it feels and smells. It is the warmth of the soil and how it crumbles between his fingers. And the proof of the method is a wonderful, productive vegetable garden – every year – without fail.
With today’s pace of life and family scattered across the country (and around the globe), often that story telling tradition falls by the wayside. To preserve some of that knowledge and wisdom enters YouTube:
“…These days, Bayla Scher, a grandmother from Worcester, Mass. — along with many more seniors — is making and posting videos. YouTube and similar Web sites are no longer just for the young and hip. The older and hip are joining in the fun, too. These days, Bayla Scher, a grandmother from Worcester, Mass. — along with many more seniors — is making and posting videos.

Bayla Scher reaches thousands via the net. Here is a sample from Bayla Scher’s kitchen – it is part one of a series:
It’s a great idea that her grandson, Avron Honig, had. The food looks wonderful and Bayla Scher is a star.
