Shabbat Menu – Mother and Child Reunion

In this week’s Parsha, we encounter another ethical dimension of the Torah, recognizing the special bond between parents and children.  A newborn calf, lamb or kid must be left with its mother for seven days before being eligible to be brought as an offering and it is not permissible to slaughter an animal and its offspring on the same day.  As Mother’s Day falls the day after this Shabbos this year, it is an especially timely and timeless story.  In the popular contemporary song by Paul Simon entitled “Mother and Child Reunion,” the singer-songwriter’s inspiration was later revealed to be a chicken, rice and egg drop soup he saw at a New York Chinatown restaurant.  I thought this would be a perfect recipe for this parsha and for everyone celebrating Mother’s Day.

Shabbat Menu – Potato and Goat Cheese...

Goat a minute?  Reading this week’s parsha, Acharei Mot combined with parsha Kedoshim, we are reminded of the centrality of the humble goat in the Jewish tradition.  It is from this reading (which is retold on Yom Kippur), that the notion of the “scapegoat” emerges. The Kohen, seeking atonement for himself, his household and the entire nation of Israel, confesses all of the sins of the people to the goat of Azazel and sends it off into the wilderness.  It is an auspicious week to remember the goat by trying a recipe made with goat cheese.  Jamie Geller’s Potato and Goat Cheese Triangles are the perfect appetizer for a dairy Shabbat dinner.  They can be prepared in advance, reheat well and are sinfully delicious!

After reading this week’s portion of Metzora, it’s understandable if you’re not the least bit hungry.   Leprosy and the details surrounding ritual impurity do not exactly give one inspiration for a Shabbat menu, but the challenge remains.  The kohen (Jewish priest) purifies the recovering leper with an elaborate ritual involving two birds, spring water in an earthen vessel, a piece of cedar wood, a scarlet thread and a bundle of hyssop.  Somehow, we’ve got a mouthwatering menu that includes EVERYTHING if you consider Saffron the scarlet thread.  Who knew this parsha could taste so good?
