Aharon Golub is the kaddishel for his family - the only son upon whose shoulders falls the responsibility to recite the prayer for the dead, the Kaddish, for his parents. And as the kaddishel, he honors his parents by remembering both the joys of his early childhood in Ludvipol and the hatred that sought to destroy Ludvipol, and his childhood. Aharon bears the burden of an entire generation of children who made promises to their parents, promises that are relived at every Yahrzeit, every anniversary of the death of their parents: Never to bask in the luxury of forgetting.(a game of tops), betting small amounts of money, like pennies and Hanukkah gelt (Yiddish for money) . Jelly doughnuts were our traditional Hanukkah fare. Purim was a very happy holiday, with special cakes and cookies, just like today. ... After that, they would say, aquot;Shalom aleichem, aquot; peace be unto you, to each other.
