In the time of the COVID-19 crisis, we are highlighting the extraordinary women in the food world who are running "essential businesses."  One such woman is Niki Russ Federman, co-owner of the legendary Russ & Daughters.  Although Niki has always shown her customers and employees extraordinary love and care, these efforts have been ramped up so many of her employees can no longer work.  Niki struggles every day to negotiate new challenges.  This year, Russ & Daughters will host their Sixth Annual Passover Seder live on Zoom on Thursday, April 9th, 2020 at 7:30 p.m.  The proceeds of the event (featuring Rabbi Andy Bachman, the Russ family, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall and more) will go directly to support Russ & Daughters employees.  Recommended donation is $20.  There will be hundreds of people from all over the country joining in.  We are re-broadcasting Niki's inspiring story to coincide with the upcoming holidays.
