Max and I, fellow rabbinical students at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion on the Cincinnati campus, dated for less than two years before our engagement.

The four cups of wine don’t come out until the Passover seders next week, but several New Yorkers started preparing for that part of the holiday last week.

Nearly 400 people attended The Jewish Week’s third Grand Wine Tasting event at City Winery, sampling the products of 27 companies, including major wineries, wine importers, wine retailers, wine touring companies, others in wine-related businesses, cheese companies and restaurants.

A total of more than 120 kosher wines from around the world were available.
