My name is Matthew, or Mayer, and I am a grade nine student at Jewish high school. I previously studied Yiddish for 7 years at an elementary school and I have a strong love for the language and the culture. I started a Yiddish club at the high school and we look at different songs and films and stories. I came across your cooking show and I was simply amazed. Your ability is marvelous. I have to tell you, I myself am extremely close to my Bubbe and Zaidy, and I love them very much. They teach me tradition to pass on to my children and I really enjoy spending time helping my Bubbe in the kitchen. Seeing you teach how to prepare the traditional foods I am so familiar with and the dedication and love your grandchild Avrum has for you, has warmed and touched my heart. I showed some of the shows to the Yiddish club and they really enjoyed it. I’m thinking about using one of your recipes and have the club make something an hand it out to the school at lunch. I want to wish you all the best and a healthy, happy, long life to you and your family, as well as a Gut Yantev this coming Shavuos. May you be blessed and may your traditions pass down and stay alive.
Your email is a delight.to read.
Avrom and I worked the whole day today updating the recipes so that they will be easily understood by especially young people so that they can keep the familiarity of traditional recipes and tastes ongoing.
We are very proud of you for a young man of your age to take the lead in your school to familiarize your peers who probably are not as familiar to the Yiddish culture as you are.
It is a mitzvah.
We want to wish you and your family a healthy and joyous Shavuos.
