Raisin Syrup

This year, I was able to obtain a rather large quantity of Passover packaged foods from a kosher food pantry after I’d already done most of my Passover shopping.

When I asked him what he thought about the article, he answered that his sister had had such wonderful results with the program, but he had never gotten the name of the book from her! The article has simply served to give him a way to find me. He was grateful for that.
