In this week’s parsha we read the remarkable tale of Joseph who ascends from the depths of the pit from which his brothers had originally sentenced him to death to reemerge in Egypt as a master of the house of the wealthy and powerful Potiphar. Joseph enjoys peace and comfort for only a short time – he is callously sent down into the prison of Egypt’s Pharaoh for resisting the urges of Potiphar’s wife. Sometimes from the “pits” or depths great things emerge, so too our Shabbat menu. Bursting with olives, figs, pomegranate and other “pitted” fruit we celebrate a spectacular Shabbat menu with you!
