After settling in Chicago following a sojourn in Shanghai, the Walkins’ Shabbos resembled that of many other European refugees. Rebbetzin Tzivia Walkin would prepare tzimmes, compote, and other old-world Shabbos basics. 


"With Shabbos,” says her daughter, Rebbetzin Chaya Leah Small, “it’s not about how fancy you make it, or how colorful. The main thing is to serve the food with love and joy and knowing you made it. The simple types of foods I grew up with, and that I still prepare, are heavenly after you’ve known deprivation.”

  2. As the mixture cools, the apples will absorb a pretty pink color from the cranberries.
