Food seems to be important part of many people's lives! I know that I find the regular weekend breakfast that my boyfriend and I make together really special. We make a big plate of food to share, and eat together while watching a fun show.
Some of my family members say that their regular Shabbat dinners, where they sit together and reflect on their week is really important to their relationships as a family.
Others say that meals where lots of people gather, such as for holidays or for cookouts, hold some of the strongest memories for them. Everyone's relationship with food is very personal, but also can be a part of their larger community. It's clear that while people's cultures may be different, we can have lots of similarities too!
Now I'm hungry!
