This week’s parsha begins with the ritual of the bikkurim – the offering of the first fruits brought by the Children of Israel to the Kohen in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.  Echoing the now familiar verses from the Hagaddah, the individual bringing the offering recounts a brief recitation of the history of the Jewish people, from the time an Aramean sought to destroy “my father” to our sojourn in Egypt and our miraculous emergence from slavery to a land flowing with milk and honey.  The offering of the first fruits is thus a connection to a long distant history, complete with its trials and tribulations, and ultimately redemption in our homeland.  As we approach the New Year, with its promise of sweetness, we highlight some of our favorite first fruits of the fall season with our delicious Shabbat menu.

  1. I want to try your recipes but the text I have to decipher is ridiculous for getting a recipe. But, the pumpkin apple soup looks delicious. If this thing fails 3 times, I’m outta here.

  2. These recipes look delicious! I would love to be able to access them. Thanks!
