Thank you cousin Robin Antar for sending in Aunt Linda’s traditional Shavuot table. Aunt Linda and Uncle Leon are known for their warmth, grace and great style. Their Shavuot table is a perfect reflection of their wonderful hobby of collecting unique and beautiful dishes and glassware, so that they can continually gather their family around their inviting table.
This Shavuot table gave me a great excuse to call Aunt Linda. Always happy to answer my questions, whether it be about her parent’s history coming from Syria, or to tell me about her elegant Shavuot table, its always fun, and a pleasure to speak to her.
The crystal goblets are from aunt Linda’s antique collection of Heisey crystal, the lace tablecloth is a purchase from a vacation to St. Thomas, the silver flatware is Christofle, and her dishes were a post wedding purchase from an English china company.
On the menu was, Koosa B’jiben (squash quiche mixed with cheese and eggs), an assorted cheese platter arranged by her grandaughter Marjorie, avocado salad with lemon and cumin, sliced tomato, basil and cheese platter, and much, much more!
By the way, Aunt Linda and Uncle Leon are very proud of their daughter Robin Antar, who is a famous sculptor, and who has a 6,000 pound sculpture of a bag of potato chips that is sitting in her garage at the time of this posting… Robin’ pieces are in some of the most prestigious corporate headquarters in the world. Doc Martin’s, Chateau Haut Brion Wines, Sketcher’s Boots and more. Check out Robin’s video HERE.
Robin’s work is also includes a beautiful collection of Torah cases and Judaica that are featured in OUR ART, a 400 page coffee table book collection of 300 artists of the Sephardic Community.
I also want to say that I really admire Aunt Linda and Uncle Leon for supporting their daughter’s artistic passion!!!
