For those growing up in the Jewish faith, tradition means everything. Barbara Stewart understands this well.
Whether it is reading the ancient Hebrew that comes with each service at Temple Beth Tefilloh in Brunswick or lighting the menorah at home during Chanukah, the religion exudes history — and Stewart embraces it.
That also extends to a seemingly nonspiritual place — the kitchen. But those in the know, understand it might just be the most spiritual place in the home. There, families whip up time-honored recipes to share with loved ones. Stewart feels that non-Jews can gain a lot from learning about Jewish culinary arts.
