What a night!

Posted on October 24, 2011 by Suzi

A bus from Pardes to Ben Yehuda Street (my first time there at night–what a trip!). I walked to Zion Square to meet a friend who guided me through the alleyways to Tmol Shilshom, a wonderful coffeehouse with quaint arched windows and shelves filled with old and rare books just aching to be browsed. The Continue Reading »

Tonight I’m hosting my first Shabbat dinner all by myself!! And the table is ready!! I must say, I think it looks so beautiful! And I have to say that I am really proud of myself!

Eating

Posted on September 18, 2011 by Andrea Wiese

I know that eating should be a simple thing, but it’s hard to eat well when someone is so busy. I don’t feel like I had time to cook this week because I was on a weekend retreat with my school. Today my lunch was carrots, a lox and cheese sandwich and an orange. Actually Continue Reading »

Judeo-Veganism: Imagine a New World

Posted on August 22, 2011 by Bookie

Cross-posted from PresenTense: Imagine a world without hunger. Imagine a world full of clean air and lush forests. Imagine a world where the words “water shortage” don’t have a ring of truth to them.

Hannukah in Israel

Posted on December 5, 2010 by Shibley

Cross-posted from my blog: On Friday afternoon, as I was preparing for Shabbat, I found myself in front of a pan of hot oil. No, I was not making latkes or sufganiyot. I was instead whipping up a batch of shnitzel for Shabbat lunch. With the cooking completed, and grease splatters on my shirt ( Continue Reading »

Giving thanks

This year, Thanksgiving falls on November 25th. What does this mean for Jews? The best meal of the year! Is there anything better than getting up early to spend the entire day cooking Thanksgiving dinner? Or the companionship of everyone gathered in the kitchen, chatting and joking and watching dinner unfold? Of course, you must Continue Reading »

In response to a number of requests for the recipe for the Stuffed Cabbage Casserole served today at Community Lunch, I am venturing into the unknown (for me at least!) world of blogging as a means of providing the recipe to those interested. I hope to use this medium in the future to post more Continue Reading »

A Time to Glean

Posted on November 18, 2009 by Natalie C.

Last Friday, after three consecutive days of hiking in the Negev, I woke up at 6:30 am. Rather than sleep in, my roommates and I rolled out of bed, boarded a bus, and travelled up north to a kibbutz near Rehovot. Our mission? To “rescue” clementines that would have been left to rot in the Continue Reading »
