  • Passover for goyim

    I can honestly say it was the best gefilte fish I ever ate, mainly because I'd never eaten any before.

    "Gefilte" sounds tastier than "ground up raw fish mixed with eggs, onions and matzoh meal then stuffed into the skin of a de-boned fish and poached."

    I ate it as part of a Passover Seder as a guest of Congregation Beth Sholom Jewish Synagogue in Beverly Hills, Fla.

    Besides gefilte fish with purple horseradish on top, I ate parsley dipped in salt water, washed my hands symbolically several times, drank four cups of wine and sang in Hebrew.
