Did you keep kosher at home?

Iudit: Not in at our house. When at our home, grandfather used to eat on special plates. My mother's brother, that is his son, did not eat a single slice of bread with us. We were not kosher. It was also difficult to keep kosher, and we lacked determination... We had holidays, we went to church; they took us pupils from school to church.

Duci (annoyed, corrects her): To the synagogue!

Iudit: To the synagogue! We celebrated the holidays. I’ve been lighting the Shabbat candles since we got married. Friday night.
