Blending Tradition and Change Across the Generations on

People often tell me I’m crazy when I tell them that Passover is my favorite Jewish holiday. The reason is that it is a holiday so steeped in home and family ritual so that everyone’s celebrations are personally meaningful and unique. So grateful to be able to share a glimpse of my family’s Seder on Blending Tradition and Change Across the Generations. 

Here is the recipe for my family's Charoset:

Nona's Sephardic Charoset


1 cup pitted dates

½ cup walnuts

1 medium apple, peeled and diced

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 or 4 tablespoons sweet Passover wine (Blackberry Maneshevitz preferred)

1 teaspoon of unsweetened applesauce


Combine all ingredients in a food processor; process until finely chopped into a paste.
