Ruth Levy (nee Weissler) and her family escaped Nazi Germany just before the outbreak of WWII and resettled in Montreal. She eventually married Sam Levy and together they had 4 sons. She kept her family's Chrimslech tradition going even when they grew up and had kids of their own - it was a way to bring the family together during Passover. When Ruth was unwell last year, her granddaughter Raphaelle took on the Chrimslech. In this video, Raphaelle gets the official directions and learns more of her grandmother's amazing story.
Food brings us together; one shared plate can produce countless moments and memories. The Roots & Recipes project aims to collect recipes and kitchen stories from first and second generation immigrants in Montreal in an inter-generational video series, Dishing Up the Past, and through live events.
