This week is called Shabbat Parah.  In the days and weeks leading up to Passover, we have a few special torah readings, this week it is about the Parah - the Red Heifer, an offering intended to remove ritual impurity and prepare our bodies and souls spiritually.  We also have to prepare dinner.  With the image of the heifer in mind and a chill of winter still in the air, we're going to enjoy a hearty beef stew and spectacular scallion biscuits.
