Goat a minute?  Reading this week’s parsha, Acharei Mot combined with parsha Kedoshim, we are reminded of the centrality of the humble goat in the Jewish tradition.  It is from this reading (which is retold on Yom Kippur), that the notion of the “scapegoat” emerges. The Kohen, seeking atonement for himself, his household and the entire nation of Israel, confesses all of the sins of the people to the goat of Azazel and sends it off into the wilderness.  It is an auspicious week to remember the goat by trying a recipe made with goat cheese.  Jamie Geller’s Potato and Goat Cheese Triangles are the perfect appetizer for a dairy Shabbat dinner.  They can be prepared in advance, reheat well and are sinfully delicious!
