A Holiday Memory
Passover in Horodenka
"It was one of the happiest memories of my childhood."
"One beautiful memory is going traveling to the neighboring town of Horodenka, my mother’s home place, for a Passover seder-- for a Passover meal. And the whole family, my mother’s family was there. My grandfather in a white silken robe as was customary, reclining on a pillow. All the children and grandchildren were there. My grandfather gave each child before the service a tiny little glass cup for wine. And I was so proud that I had my own wine glass. I recall just reading and the songs, I fell asleep long before it ended, but it was one of the happiest memories of my childhood."
