Rose Zawid and her husband Jack came to the United States from Poland in 1949. After living and working in Baltimore and New York, they spent 10 years working on a chicken farm in New Jersey. They then went to Atlantic City where they opened a kosher boarding house and catering business they still run today. Rose and Jack survived the Holocaust, both losing people close to them, but food helps them celebrate the family that did survive and enjoy the family they have today as a reaffirmation of life.
