The Gefilte Fish Chronicles

The Gefilte Fish Chronicles

"Don't just stand there, Cook!"
"Don't just sit there, Eat!"

In 1904, Abe and Minnie Dubroff immigrated from Russia to Brooklyn where they raised seven daughters and a son.

For a century, the family has gathered at Passover and celebrated the Seder together... first in Brooklyn, then in Boonton, New Jersey.

For the last four decades, Passover has been celebrated in Newburgh, New York.

Led by the three surviving sisters, Sophie Patasnik, Peppy Barer and Rosie Groman, traditional preparations were made for the Seder at Peppy's home in Newburgh.

Six Weeks before the Seder they shopped and chopped, tasted and seasoned.

Using recipes nearly a century old, they began to put together the Gefilte Fish, Cholent, Horse Radish and Sponge Cake.

This is a loving, living album of the Seder.

"I've heard it said many times, and it's the truth: The family that sits around the table together, stays together.
And we have many tables," Peppy says.
