Israeli family mourns grandfather killed by Hamas and worries about grandmother, a captive in Gaza
Adina Moshe's Israeli family is hoping to get her heart medication to her in Gaza, despite her captivity by Hamas
David Moshe was born in Iraq. So decades later in Israel, his wife, Adina, cooked his favorite Iraqi food, including a traditional dish with dough, meat and rice.
But what really delighted the family, their granddaughter Anat recalls, was Adina's maqluba — a Middle Eastern meal served in a pot that is flipped upside-down at the table, releasing the steaming goodness inside. Pleasing her husband of more than a half-century, Anat Moshe says, was her grandmother's real culinary priority.
“They were so in love, you don’t know how in love they were,” Anat Moshe, 25, said in a telephone interview Thursday. Adina Moshe “would make him his favorite food, Iraqi food. Our Shabbat table was always so full.”
It will be wracked with heartbreak now.
