The Jaffe/Seidel Family
The Jaffe family grocery store: Sara, my paternal grandmother, in the doorway with Uncle Izzy (husband of Aunt Anna Jaffe)). Date unknown, as is the name of the woman standing in front.
The Engelman/Needle Family
Passover, sometime in the 1950s. Jewish holidays were observed but adherence to Talmudic teachings was lax. At a family reunion in 2003, one cousin asked if anyone had Uncle Sam Miller's crab soup recipe.
