After Korach and his followers challenge the leadership of Moses and meet a dramatic end, Hashem asks Moses to collect a staff from each of the tribal leaders. For the Tribe of Levi, the staff is inscribed with the name of Aaron.  The next day Aaron’s staff is blooming with almonds, signifying the continuity of Aaron’s spiritual leadership.  We’re blooming almonds this week at Joy of Kosher with a delicious summer Shabbat menu that is perfect hot or cold — we kick things off with a brightStrawberry Cucumber Salad with Almonds and Mint, Almond Crusted Chicken Fingers that the kids will love and a decadent Chocolate Almond Panna Cotta for dessert.

    Great-looking menu! Note that the first link to the strawberry cucumber salad (in the text) is broken, while clicking the picture works. Similarly, clicking the picture of the Chocolate Almond Panna Cotta brings you to a page talking about the dessert, but does not include the recipe for it – you have to find the link within that article. The direct link is the following: http://www.joyofkosher.com/recipe/chocolate-almond-panna-cotta/

    Thanks for providing these! I always love reading them, and especially love the connection to each week’s parsha.

  2. Tamar, i love how you linked the desser to the parsha…. and the dessert itself looks amazing…might have to try it soon! maybe even this shabbat, ill let you know
