Posted on October 16th, 2017
BY THE NOSHER for MyJewishLearning.com


So many recipes, you will never get bored with Friday roast chicken.


Having chicken on Friday night is an ingrained tradition for Eastern European families. Good roasted chicken doesn’t require many ingredients, and it feeds a crowd, making it an obvious choice. And back in Eastern Europe, red meat was expensive and not as readily accessible; it was generally reserved for more special occasions like holidays. Food writer and cookbook author Ronnie Fein shares, “Shabbat was one of the few times the Jews, who were poor, could indulge in chicken.

Stuffed cabbage is one of those quintessential, Eastern European Jewish comfort foods enjoyed at holidays and special occasions.

But did you know that the origins of stuffed cabbage can be traced across Europe, Russia, the Balkans, and as far east as Iran and Northern China!

By LAURA for Mother Would Know


Kugel is the kind of dish that lends itself to endless variations and numerous occasions. A pudding, savory or sweet, it is traditionally served on the Sabbath and for meals during the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur holidays.

But in my family, it’s also a favored dish for weekdays from early fall, right through to the beginning of summer. In fact, my kids used to eat sweet kugel at least once a week and more often if I didn’t groan when they requested it yet again.

MAJYK 2017 is coming to Beth El?  

The Mid-Atlantic Jr. Youth Kallah will be hosted by Beth El on December 15-17 to experience a taste of NFTY and learn about its traditions and lingo.  In order to make this a success we need to find host families for 150-200 middle schoolers.  Please contact our Youth Advisors, Nori and Marissa, to become a host family!

 

Beth El is raising funds for a new playground?

With seed money from Cantor Jason Kaufman's concert, the JCCNV was able to start a fund with all proceeds going towards a new playground for the preschool.  If you would like to donate towards this very worthy project, simply send your donations to Beth El Hebrew Congregation and notate "Playground."  If you donate on line, the playground fund is first on the list!
