Shabbat Menu – Mother and Child Reunion

In this week’s Parsha, we encounter another ethical dimension of the Torah, recognizing the special bond between parents and children.  A newborn calf, lamb or kid must be left with its mother for seven days before being eligible to be brought as an offering and it is not permissible to slaughter an animal and its offspring on the same day.  As Mother’s Day falls the day after this Shabbos this year, it is an especially timely and timeless story.  In the popular contemporary song by Paul Simon entitled “Mother and Child Reunion,” the singer-songwriter’s inspiration was later revealed to be a chicken, rice and egg drop soup he saw at a New York Chinatown restaurant.  I thought this would be a perfect recipe for this parsha and for everyone celebrating Mother’s Day.
