Gold and silver can be used to make things more beautiful, to show our love and appreciation, like a wedding ring or a special piece of jewelry.  Or gold can blind us with the idolatry of wealth.  In this week’s Parsha, we have a little of both.  B’nai Yisrael are each commanded to each give a half-shekel of silver to help build the Mishkan.  It is a gift from individuals for a holy communal purpose.  But when Moses does not descend from Mount Sinai as fast as the Children of Israel are expecting, the people create a golden calf to worship.  It is a corruption of the very generosity that began our parsha.  Gold can also be the centerpiece of a magnificent Friday night dinner, like our Chicken with Golden Raisins, Green Olives and Lemon recipe.

To light the eternal flame, the children of Israel are commanded to bring pure oil of olives crushed for lighting.  I use olive oil in most everything. The diversity of flavors – from herbal to earthy can bring out the best of breads, salads, vegetables, fish, poultry and even steaks.  Heart healthy and a staple of the Mediterranean diet, olive oil is a precious part of our Biblical tradition and our culinary heritage.  This week we are highlighting a menu that shows many ways to use the amazing olive and its flavorful oil.

I also want to wish a Mazal Tov to Ali from Alibabka.com and Matan on their recent marriage.   This Shabbat Menu is a little bit fancy, in honor of their wedding.  The Kosher Connection is hosting a Virtual Sheva Brachot, see what everyone else is making for Ali below.

This week, we move from the ecstasy to the intricate.  From Mount Sinai to the Mishkan in all its glorious detail.  In the Ark there rested the Ten Commandments, protected by two winged cherubim made out of pure gold.  On the outside, the seven-branched menorah and the table where the “showbread” was placed.  When I think of a bread so good that I would leave it outside, next to the Menorah and sitting in the shadow of the Holy Ark, my thoughts turn to this decadent and delicious Chocolate Chip Challah Bread that is as sweet a way to start your meal as it could be to end it!!!

In this week’s parsha, we learn of the Torah’s prohibition against eating milk with meat.  It is this historic moment when Joy of Kosher was born, as future generations of Jewish cooks must learn the art of creative kosher cooking.  We don’t mean to “milk” this metaphor, but we “calf” to say that it doesn’t get more creative than this Ranch Chicken recipe.
