Shabbat Menu – Matzo Ball Soup

In Behaalotecha, unable to bring the Passover offering at the appointed time, some Jews who had been ritually unclean and therefore prohibited from making a sacrifice on the appointed day, asked Moses for another opportunity to participate in the ancient ritual.  Moses, in characteristic humility, asked Hashem for help resolving this question and remarkably, those who were excluded from the sacrificial rite were granted a second chance to celebrate Passover.  While I would not want to provoke a rebellion by suggesting another seder, I am going to suggest a recipe for Matzo Ball soup (Manischewitz Cook-Off Winning recipe) that is perfectly acceptable for Passover or any day you want to remember the miraculous Exodus from Egypt and the sacrifices of our ancestors.

In this week’s parsha, we encounter the laws of the nazir, an individual who voluntarily foresakes wine, grapes or any products distilled from grapes, lets his or her hair grow long, and avoids contact with a dead body.  Today, we have many ways of expressing piety without abstinence.  This parsha is also a reminder that grapes have the potential to sanctify or to debase.  We look to this week’s menu with the spirit of elevation, incorporating the grape (in various forms) throughout each course of our Shabbat menu.

This week’s parsha includes the census of the Children of Israel as they continue their wanderings in the desert.  Against the sweltering heat of the sun, battered by the dust storms and harsh elements,  I can’t help but wonder how they managed the difficulty of the journey and the uncertainty about when (and even if) they would see the Promised Land.  As our own weather turns toward summer, I like to spend Shabbat outdoors as much as possible, but it’s nice to come back home when the day is done.  This week, I’m thinking of a Shabbat menu that also travels well — whether it’s outside to a deck, balcony, picnic table or a great lawn.

In this week’s parsha we learn about the laws of the Sabbatical year whereby on the seventh year, the land is granted a year of rest.  The Children of Israel are promised that with faith and fidelity, the sixth year will produce enough produce to sustain them through the seventh.  After seven cycles, there is a great celebration to commemorate the Jubilee Year.  It includes a release of debts, freedom for slaves and servants and a time to rest from the toil of harvest and planting.  Although traditionally served tableside with flames rising from a frying pan, this easy Cherries Jubilee Brownie recipe can be prepared in a Shabbat-friendly way as a rich and delicious parsha-inspired ending to your Shabbat meal.
