This week our topic is real life heroes. Not all heroes wear capes. These average Joes had no special power except the power to put themselves at extreme personal risk for a stranger. Nydia tells us about Irena Sendler, a Polish woman who put her own life in danger to save Jewish children during the Nazi invasion of Poland. Dana shares the amazing story of Raoul Wallenberg who used the phrase fake it til you make it quite literally when he saved over a 100 thousand Jews from certain death. Cindy tells us the touching tale of a local police officer who saved a man from suicide.
For dinner this week, Cindy took us back to the old country and treated us to Polish meatballs in a delicious sauce. For dessert, she made some tender chocolate rugelach. She brought us back by pairing our meal with a Riesling from a local winery called Tomasello’s. This wine has a special place in our hearts since it’s grown locally but it was a tasty Riesling and an excellent way to round off the meal.
