In this week’s parsha, we celebrate the beauty and mystery of the sanctuary.   The gifts we make help create a space for the presence of Hashem to dwell among us.  From the pure gold of the menorah to the cherubim and colorful fabrics, we are inspired to give from our hearts.  The mishkan is made complete with repurposed jewelry from the Egyptians.  In this way, the gold, silver and gemstones serve as a renewal of the present with a reminder from the past.  To kick off our Shabbat menu this week, we take a simple traditional dish and transform it into a show-stopping ring. 

GEFILTE FISH RING

This recipe gives you the traditional gefilte fish taste with a smoother, more elegant, texture and presentation– plus, it won’t make your kitchen smell like fish for days!  

Beer Braised Brisket

When you have a lot of beer in your fridge there's only one thing to do with it, make brisket for shabbos!

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

A side of creamy mash is the perfect accompaniment to the brisket and is a great make ahead and reheat friendly recipe. 

Red Cabbage Slaw
