Thanksgiving is coming, Thanksgiving is coming.This is my favorite holiday. No presents, it's not religious,and you can eat until you drop on the couch , in front of the TV , in a food coma . All you need to have is a turkey and you
are in business.Or, have good friends who will ask you to join them . You bring a dish of your hostesses choosing and you are ready to eat. The menu is written in stone, no deviations, no "let's try something new this year". It shouldn't surprise me when I
hear that the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day here in the U.S. Who doesn't want to go to their roots, if they can,and sit at the table with friends and family and just be thankful for being together.
I had a turkey
tease today when two of us from our congregation cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner for our Senior Outreach program. Non of us hesitated to have seconds on everything.I don't know when I will be hungry again, but I know that by the time it is actually Thanksgiving,
I'll be at the table with fork and knife, poised to eat that same meal, again, and look forward to having left overs of the same meal, again
Now I am wondering if they make a big deal of Thanksgiving in Israel. Maybe this will be where
I start making my contribution to Israel. I can introduce my new Israeli neighbors to an American custom. It's never too late to start putting my favorite recipes away to take out when I get to Israel and Thanksgiving comes around, the fourth Thursday in November,
on an American calender . Let's pray that we will all have plenty to be thankful for. I know Israel has turkey's, but where do I get cranberries.?
