I am grateful to Jason for his love and devotion, as well as to JDate for the introduction to this wonderful man.
I love the coming of spring for wine. It’s still cool enough to drink big hearty reds and complex whites. At the same time, you can finally order rosé again, or chill those crisp whites that pair so well with light fare and seafood, i.e., warm-weather delicacies.

“And the maiden [Esther] pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily provided her with her ointments, along with her appointed rations, and with the seven maids, which were designated to be given to her out of the king’s house…” (Esther 2:9).
This Shabbat is Shabbat Parashat Zachor, the Sabbath of Remembering.
