It's that time of year for traditions

"It's tradition!" Topol's powerful voice hurled those words into the air and audiences enjoying the production, "Fiddler on the Roof," snapped to attention. I am convinced many young minds heard them as a commandment coming down from above. You do not violate family traditions. That's how it is in our family and in families all over the world. Christian and Jewish traditions spill all over one another at this time of the year and I love it. I love our family's traditions even though our children and grandchildren often hold them over our heads.
