This booklet explains the history of Hanukkah, the symbolism and significance of lighting candles for eight nights, the blessings that accompany the lighting of the candles, the holiday's foods, the game of dreidels, and more!
Romemu (roh·meh·moo) seeks to integrate body, mind, and soul in Jewish practice. This is a Judaism that will ignite your Spirit. We are a progressive, fully egalitarian community committed to tikkun olam, or social action, and to service that flows from an identification with the sacredness of all life.
“A Light Through the Ages” tells the meaning of Chanukah through story and song. With musicians from Zamir Chorale of Boston, Joshua Jacobson artistic director and original story by Rabbi Howard A. Berman of Central Reform Temple, this event concludes with a dramatic candle light ceremony. A festive reception follows.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Ruth, my understanding is that the chicken feet tend to have a lot of cartilage that breaks down in a simmer to release delicious flavor. I have seen similar suggestions for cow knuckles when making a beef stock.
Great article! My husband loves many of the foods you describe here; some of them I ‘m still learning to like even while I serve them to the kids (pickled herring, gefilte fish, every kind of pickle…) Others are easy to adopt and love and even cook. I’ll have to try some of these to see whether he knows and loves them, but hasn’t wanted to trouble me by asking for them. (He does not cook any thing unless it is shaped like a pancake or a dessert.) Beet borscht, maybe.
Thank you for all of this information! I often hear the words but could not understand what they were. My daughter just asked me what Babka was and I ended up reading the definition of every word here! Now I know what a matzha ball is and not to order chicken feet! Thanks again!
