KOFTA STUFFED DATES

Jewish-Food - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 12:00am
by Chanie Apfelbaum for Millennial Kosher on aish.com


YIELD: 24 dates

Kosherizing popular foods is one of my passions and I was determined to do so with the classic appetizer, bacon-wrapped dates. Stuffing the sweet dates with the spiced kofta filling and wrapping them in smoky kosher beef fry creates the perfect party bite that pairs well with beer. Your hubby (or wife) will thank you.

Finally, an Age-Appropriate Holocaust Movie for Young Viewers

Children-and-Familes - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 12:00am
BY MARJORIE INGALL FOR TABLET MAGAZINE

 

‘The Number on My Great-Grandpa’s Arm’ uses animation to elevate a documentary about a survivor and his 10-year-old great-grandson

 

Regular Tablet readers know that I loathe most Holocaust media for kids: apps that are flippant or misguided; slim, pornographically violent volumes of poetry featuring mental monologues by bloodthirsty Nazis; richly illustrated fables queasily blending history and legend; wide-eyed, manipulative middle-grade weepies; YA novels using the Holocaust as a jumping-off point for teen shapeshifter fantasy. And then there are the horrifying old black-and-white movies we were shown in Hebrew school, spotlighting silent footage of bulldozers pushing mountains of corpses and hollow-eyed, emaciated survivors peering blankly at their liberators from stacked wooden bunks. None of these is a good introduction to one of history’s great horrors.

Israel makes history and does something to save the whole world

Israeli-News - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 12:00am
By Leah Rosenberg for Israel Unwired


Israel has given to the world in many ways. One Israeli contribution is showing the world how to make desert land flourish!


Desertification

Desertification is a global environmental problem where already dry land becomes even more arid. It can be caused by many things, but one thing is for sure: It is bad for the world and the environment. And another thing is certain: Israel has figured out ways to combat desertification.

Premarital Blessing Now Challenging Middle Movement

Interfaith - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 12:00am
BY STEWART AIN for The Jewish Week


As the Conservative branch looks to reach out to interfaith couples, the aufruf ceremony is coming under scrutiny.


After Elleana Goldman was called to the Torah and recited a blessing, Rabbi Howard Buechler of the Dix Hills (L.I.) Jewish Center called her fiancé forward and together the couple spoke an English prayer thanking God for bringing them moments of joy.

Lab-Grown Chicken Startup SuperMeat Could Disrupt The Entire Meat Market

Going-Green-Jewishly - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 12:00am
By Simona Shemer, NoCamels


If a piece of chicken was created in a lab, independently of an animal’s body, would it still taste like chicken? Yes, says SuperMeat, an Israeli producer of lab-grown poultry extracted from the stem cells of a live chicken. The Israeli food startup also says it would help provide solutions to some of the world’s biggest food issues like the high cost of production, pollution from animal emissions, animal cruelty, and world hunger.

This baseball player was secretly trained as a government assassin

Feature-Article - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 12:00am
By Michael Kaplan for the New York Post


While baseball pro Moe Berg will never be remembered as one of the game’s greats — in an unremarkable career spanning from 1923 until 1939, the catcher was traded eight times — he does go down in history as the Major League’s all-star spy.

During World War II, Berg risked his life to investigate Germany’s progress in creating an atomic bomb. His key quarry was Werner Heisenberg, one of the world’s most brilliant physicists.
