THINGS DISCUSSED WHEN MY RELATIVES FROM THE UPPER EAST SIDE CAME TO THE LOWER EAST SIDE FOR LUNCH.

My mother and some of my older female relatives who live on the Upper East Side came downtown to the Lower East Side to have lunch with me. (At the @RussAndDaughters Cafe, because of course.) Here is a list of some of what we discussed this time.
  1. The Holocaust.
  2. The Hamptons.
  3. Family history.
  4. Real estate.
  5. The state of Israel.
  6. Humor.
  7. Who was depressed.
  8. Who wrote a book.
  9. How Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the hamotzi at another relative's son's bar mitzvah recently. (She did a wonderful job.)
