Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Dottie Weber - The Meaning of the Jewish Holidays

There are two major Jewish Holidays coming up on the calendar, in fact one starts today at sundown - Rosh Hashanah - the beginning of the Jewish New Year.  I am not Jewish but many of my friends and acquaintances are.  I wanted to understand the meaning of Rosh Hashanah and then, Yom Kippur which is in 10 days.  I know these holidays are steeped in ritual and traditions.

My friend Dottie Weber shares what these holidays mean to her.  And, in her next interview, airing on Saturday October 1, 2011, Dottie shares her menus and some recipes.
