Father's Day 2020 Recipes from Holocaust Survivors Settled in South Jersey Communities
in Atlantic and Cape May Counties
As we celebrate Father’s Day, we can lovingly look back and remember our dads (sometimes
moms) preparing special recipes that they brought from their childhoods into their
own kitchens. After WWII, as Holocaust survivors settled in South Jersey communities
in Atlantic and Cape May Counties, some of these recipes were brought from Europe
into their kitchens in South Jersey. Food often plays an important role in celebrations.
Some of our happiest moments are associated with eating together with family and friends.
For Father’s Day 2020, the staff of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center
at Stockton University are sharing stories and recipes of some of our local Holocaust
Enjoy these recipes like Cyla’s Compote, which she often made for her husband Joel
near Father’s Day. Everyone should also try Ernest’s Cucumber Salad, a perfect dish
for Father’s Day or any summer barbeque!
Share with us a photo of your dish made from one of the recipes in honor of Father’s
Day. Please use and share any of the recipe cards in this post! If you do use any
of the recipes, post a photo and tag the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource
Center on Facebook or Instagram! Do not forget to include the hashtags #hrcrecipes & #fathersday2020
