Shabbat Menu – Matzo Ball Soup

In Behaalotecha, unable to bring the Passover offering at the appointed time, some Jews who had been ritually unclean and therefore prohibited from making a sacrifice on the appointed day, asked Moses for another opportunity to participate in the ancient ritual.  Moses, in characteristic humility, asked Hashem for help resolving this question and remarkably, those who were excluded from the sacrificial rite were granted a second chance to celebrate Passover.  While I would not want to provoke a rebellion by suggesting another seder, I am going to suggest a recipe for Matzo Ball soup (Manischewitz Cook-Off Winning recipe) that is perfectly acceptable for Passover or any day you want to remember the miraculous Exodus from Egypt and the sacrifices of our ancestors.

Mod Matzo Ball Soup

Kishka Stuffed Chicken

Wild Rice with Dried Apricots & Pistachios

  1. I loved this soup at the Mani cook-off and have been wanting to make it ever since – thanks for the reminder! I think I will cook the carrot ribbons so they are not just for decoration but can be enjoyed. Of course I also love these pops – lol bc they are mine BUT honestly Tamar you are such a great menu planner – I love your shabbat menus!
