A Loaf Under Each Arm

Challah580-337“How are you today?” I asked my friend Henry. With a twinkle in his gray eyes, he replied, “As my father would say, ‘I’ve got a loaf under each arm.’”

Honoring my father

My father, z’l, used to ask me every Sunday when I was in college, “Are you getting enough to eat?” He was concerned because he often went hungry when he was in school in the “old country.”

His life was dedicated to strengthening the Jewish people. He built a world-famous Judaica library. He read Torah. He wrote books. He taught Israeli literature; Agnon was a favorite. And he sat next to me, evening after evening, to give me a foundation in Hebrew.My father’s yahrzeit is in October. So I think of him even more than usual at this time of year.
