Temple-goers prepare a traditional meal at a gurdwara
Sunday represents a special time for many American families, cultures, and religions. At a temple, a gurdwara, in Middleton, Wis., the Sikh community gathers at 1 p.m. every Sunday for langar.
Langar, which means community kitchen, is a “special meal, not like a household meal,” according to Satwant Kaur, member of the Middleton Sikh community. The meal is prepared during the Sunday service by a different family each week, and for the Middleton Sikh community that means the extended family. Everyone from nieces, cousins and brother-in-laws help prepare some aspect of the meal.
