The global holiday village

Have you ever wondered how a Jewish family living in India might get matzo for Passover?

Of course you have. Silly question.

Well, I can't speak for all of us, but this Jewish family is having their matzo brought to them by an Austrian Catholic who lives in the UK and teaches religion at a university there. He also happens to be one of Robert's best friends, a foodie, and an all around great guy who is coming to visit us here in Bangalore right before the holiday. He'll actually be here for the first night seder too!

But really: an Austrian Catholic living in the UK is bringing Pesach matzo to American Jews living in India. What an amazing, gorgeous world we live in.

PS He is also bringing wine! Wine and matzo!
