It’s quite incredible that you all came out on the first cold and rainy night we’ve had in months, thank you, truly.  And thank you for making memories with me just outside the walls of the Old City.  Scroll down for a recap of the food, film, friends and fun.

The evening was magical, the food was stunning and the people, oh the people, were so warm, and happy and friendly and fabulous!  Part of the Jerusalem Jewish Film Festival, the SOLD OUT Israel JOY of KOSHER Book Party was an emotional and festive evening, one I will never forget!

We had so much fun this year with the once in a lifetime convergence of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving.  On the site, in the magazine and even in person.  Although Hanukah goes way beyond the externals of the “traditional” foods, Thanksgiving is very much tied to the official “Thanksgiving dinner,” and as such, people were looking for interesting ways to have their turkey with their latkes.

That’s where Shfira Klein comes in.  Many communities called upon Shifra, the editor-in-chief of the Joy of Kosher magazine to demonstrate various Thanksgivukkah menu options. She had a lot of fun, check it out.


 

Meir Panim’s Free Restaurants Spread The Joy

One cool Jerusalem morning last month, I met Aryeh, the head of operations at the Meir Panim Free Restaurant near the city’s Central Bus Station. As part of Meir Panim’s efforts to ease the burden of poverty for many of Israel’s impoverished residents, this particular Free Restaurant – one of seven across Israel – serves approximately 250 meals daily.

Before Aryeh begins directing me and the rest of the volunteers, he gives me a tour. There’s a large industrial kitchen, plus a storage area for food. He shows me the collection of clothing that people have dropped off for him to distribute.
