Understanding the Jewish Feasts
Eating meals together is a universal sign of unity. Many cultural differences can be found in the different structures surrounding the preparation and partaking of feasts. Usually the most common form of eating meals represents the family unit. Those eating at the table together are often associated through familial or highly favored ties.
