We start the last book of the Torah this week and it is a time for reflection.  Moshe gathers together the Children of Israel and recounts our history from Egypt to Sinai to their dramatic approach to the Promised Land.  As we say farewell to Moshe we say hello to our future.  We are a people bound by our history and one part of that is our food.  This week’s Shabbat menu highlights  traditional Jewish ashkenazi food as passed down through our history as a Jewish people.
