In this week’s parsha, Moses gathers together the Children of Israel and recounts our history from Egypt to Sinai to their dramatic approach to the Promised Land. We are a people bound by our history, the parts that we will always remember and that which we would rather forget. Our Jewish experience is filled with moments that connect us to the past. This week’s Shabbat menu highlights a part of my family history, with a cookie recipe from my Savta that I have used as a base for anything from hamantaschen to rugelach to just decorating with the kids and Jamie's Beef Porridge (a little warm for this time of year, but can be a one pot meal), hailed as a Geller classic. B’tayavon!
