The courtship of Rebecca is remarkable to watch unfold. In this week’s parsha, Abraham makes his servant swear to find a bride from among his kinsmen and Eliezer meets a most appropriate match with the beautiful and kind daughter of Abraham’s brother, Nahor. Eliezer consecrates the auspicious meeting by giving rings and bracelets to Rebecca. And after the marriage proposal is accepted by Rebecca’s family, an engagement party is enjoyed by all. The Torah notes the silver and gold bestowed on Rebecca and the delicious fruits given to Rebecca’s brother and mother. So to celebrate this happy occasion, we take inspiration from Eliezer with a dessert featuring Bacardi Silver Rum and golden pineapple for a most delicious Pineapple Upside Down Cake.
