An Acquired Taste

Parashat Mishpatim: (Exodus 21:1-- 24:18)


A friend told me about a scene he witnessed recently at a delicatessen. There was a woman who apparently was not Jewish standing in line at the bakery counter. When they called her number she pointed to the prune and poppy seed hamantaschen and asked for a dozen. "No, you want these," said the elderly Jewish woman who was serving her, pointing to the apricot hamantaschen instead. "No, I want those," the woman reiterated pointing again to the prune and poppy seed variety.
