In 1993, Chasi Baksht had everything a woman could ask for. “My husband was a rosh kollel and I had a great job teaching and organizing 11 musicals a year,” she says. “We lived in Bayit Vegan close to my parents [Leibel and author Malka Adler, a”h], who pampered me. I never began cooking for Shabbos until the chickens that my mother-in-law cut up for me arrived together with a selection of cakes,” she says.
