Word of the Day / Kibud: Honor thy father, mother and snack time
To give honor to, and to provide refreshment, are the same word in Hebrew. This may not be coincidence
Sure, I know the close relationship between Jews and food has become something of a cliché. And while I did once witness a woman in the park practically force-feeding spaghetti Bolognese to a child in a swing, and have seen parents stop children from playing just so they can give them a cookie, I realize there are other cultures that are also pretty big on food.
