Shabbat Menu – Fall Off Bone Lamb Shanks

The Book of Genesis is our story of creation.  As we reach Vayechi (“and he lived”) we turn from the hopeful anticipation of life that greeted us during the opening chapters of the first book, to a reflective, contemplative awareness that we are not immortal and we are judged by what we do during our brief stay on earth.  The death of Jacob and the return of his bones to the Holy Land marks the end of the lives of the patriarchs.  The death of Joseph, with the resulting vow to take his bones from Egypt to the Promised Land, ushers in an era of harsh slavery and oppression, but ultimately redemption.  This week we’ll take bones and transform our Shabbat meal into a celebration of all things meat.
