I am hoping:
that the better part of the Corona virus is behind us so that we can begin anew;
that most if not all of our employees will be back working sooner rather than later;
that families enjoyed the best of each other if they were lucky enough to stay at home but if they weren’t, they were able to face time with their families as we did with our grandchildren;
that those individuals who were not at home with their families –– but on the front lines –– know how appreciative we all are for their service;
that all those who have a 401k plan or other retirement plan dependent on the vagaries of the stock market see an upward movement in their account;
that all our vendors emerge from this devastating blow to our economy;
that we see many more smiles and the playful bantering that typically is part of the genuine kosher deli experience when we reopen fully;
that the pages devoted to the obituaries lessen, and the New York Times marriage section becomes greater;
that everyone emerges with greater empathy for those who are incarcerated for nonviolent behavior;
And lastly, I am hoping that we never have to be a participant in another pandemic in our lifetimes, so that we don’t have to imagine a world without restaurants, without kosher delis.
Thank you to all our patrons for your past, present and future support. I am hoping.
With best regards,
