Stories: Who We Have Lost

Brisket & Rosh Hashana

Who did you lose to Covid 19? Helen Cohen

This is our third Rosh Hashana without Bubbe, who died due to Covid in May 2020. We were talking about her as we planned our family meal and wound up pondering the mystery of her insistence on always cooking and serving us brisket, though none of us wanted to eat it, half of us being vegan, and even SHE didn’t like meat, and less so the older she grew.

I miss her more than I can say. I may have to eat brisket now.
