In parsha Ki Tavo, Moses tells the Children of Israel to bring the first-ripened fruits (bikkurim) to the Temple after they settle the land of Israel and declare their gratitude to Hashem.  As we plan this week’s Shabbat menu and look ahead to the High Holiday meals, we have a beautiful brisket recipe that highlights the pomegranate, one of the seven species of Israel traditionally associated with the bikkurim offering.

Jewish lawyers of the world unite in celebrating this week’s parsha, where Moses instructs the people of Israel to appoint judges and law enforcement administrators in every city. “Justice, justice shall you pursue,” Moses explains, without corruption or favoritism to the rich or powerful.  In my mind, I think of the scales of justice in perfect balance.  On my plate, I think of the scales of a delicious baked trout – dressed up for Shabbat with a light fennel salad.

In this week’s parsha (Eikev), Moses is reflecting on forty years of wandering in the desert, and reminds the Children of Israel how Hashem sustained them with daily manna from heaven.  The lesson Moses teaches is “that man does not live on bread alone, but by the utterance of Hashem’s mouth.”  We agree, but we still love our bread.  This week we are bringing the bread.  We celebrate with a challah recipe your guests will be hollering for (Jamie’s special), a spectacular stuffing and a bountiful bread pudding.
