Through it all, I am overcome by the outpouring of support and love that we have felt from our extended family, our friends, and the broader community. Truly, the food in the shiva house overflows the freezers. And back home, we have received so many offers for dinners and food, especially with the holidays approaching and this busy time.
While my husband remains with his mother and brothers, I spent some time today with my own mother, grateful for her love, support, and strength through this difficult time. Together, we baked challah for Rosh HaShanah.
