  • Stuffed: Thanksgiving on Hope Street

    By Rob Eshman

    November 20, 2013 | 4:05 pm

    Last Sunday, my job was to make stuffing for 400 people. I said I’d do it because there’s a part of me that prefers to forget that it’s been 25 years since I was a caterer, and I assumed it would be as easy now as it was then.

    Every year for the past nine years, Nashuva, the...

    Shabbat Shalom!


    Every Friday, I'll be offering a story, recipe, suggestion, or idea to inspire you and your family to make the coming Shabbat extra special - and for this first "Shabbat Shalom!" post, I thought I would offer a snapshot of what Shabbat looks like in my home.

  • Chill Out, It’s Just A Dinner Party

    By Elana Horwich

    October 17, 2013 | 9:00 am

    The notion that one person, usually a woman, is responsible from start to finish for a perfect dinner party performance plagues my students with worry. Many cook really well but are too scared to have anyone over to eat! They fret: How can I make sure the dinner party will be...

  • A Shabbat meal left for those in need

    July 17, 2013 | 1:47 pm

    On a recent Thursday evening, instead of reading a book or watching a movie at home with her children, Stacy Kent brought her daughter, Rayna, 9, and son, Ami, 7, to a warehouse on the corner of Pico Boulevard and Wetherly Drive.

    Their mission: Help make Shabbat, well, Shabbat...

  • Excitement You Can Taste

    By Michael Israel

    June 24, 2013 | 10:14 am

    Summer has arrived. In my opinion, there is nothing better on a hot summer day than spicy food. Interestingly enough, the greatest spicy cuisines come from very hot regions such as Southeast Asia, Central America and North Africa. Some studies show that eating spicy food on a hot...

    So, you're a beginner? Perfect. A lot of my clients were once, too. Today they invent their own recipes, such as my Pita Pizza and Sweet Potato Fries... some of the recipes you'll find in my 10 Day Shred and 3D-Xcelerated packages. Rest assured, I am not here to turn you into the...

  • One Israeli Creation for the Weekend

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    January 4, 2013 | 12:20 pm

    This weekend, you are all invited to go to your nearest grocery store or Supermarket (before Shabbat enters, of course,) and purchase a delicious Israeli creation (in case they sell it.) Yes,  turns out there are foods invented by Israelis:

  • A young chef’s guide to the Rosh Hashanah meal

    By Michael Israel

    September 5, 2012 | 10:29 am

    Considering the history of the Jewish people, the fact that Jews are still celebrating the High Holy Days today is a miracle in itself. Strong traditions and lasting rituals have enabled Jews to survive the most threatening periods of history. With the freedoms we have as modern...

    June 7, 2012 | 4:19 pm

    President Obama will honor Israeli President Shimon Peres with a White House dinner after he awards him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

  • At ZOA dinner, Glenn Beck dishes out the pro-Israel meat

    November 21, 2011 | 4:02 pm

    The Zionist Organization of America’s annual dinner is a place where conventional thinking about the liberal proclivities of American Jews goes to die. But never quite like Sunday night—when Tea Party darling and Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachman served as the opening...

  • Columbia students disinvited from Ahmadinejad dinner

    September 21, 2011 | 11:41 am

    Members of a Columbia University international relations group will not attend a dinner with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad after the invitation was withdrawn.

  • Israelis + Cell Phones + Sushi = Impaling a Stranger with a Chopstick

    By Ilana Angel

    September 15, 2011 | 7:50 am

    Yesterday was busy.  I worked all day, picked up my son from school, and with Big Brother and America’s Got Talent having their season finales, and Survivor premiering, I had a long night of blogging for my reality blog Keeping it Real.  I decided we would go out for dinner so I...

  • Rosh Hashanah ‘in the house tonight’ dances into the new year

    September 13, 2011 | 6:01 pm

    Aish brings together rhythm, beats and davening for their Rosh Hashanah ‘in the house tonight’ dancing spectacle that parodies LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem.  Here’s the chorus from the lyrics, but be sure to watch the video for the full effect.

    Rosh Hashanah’s in the house tonight
    All the world is passing through the light
    Let’s all get written in the book of Life
    Shana Tova—it’s High Holiday time

     

  • My 4th of July Dinner Date

    By Ilana Angel

    July 4, 2011 | 11:54 pm

    I spent most of my weekend at home.  I cleaned, read, and spent time missing my son.  I decided to allow myself the weekend to be a little sad he was away for so long, with the intention of snapping out of it on Tuesday morning.  My friend Tammy decided wallowing until Tuesday was...

  • This seder honors today’s Egyptians

    April 20, 2011 | 3:51 pm

    Jews have long celebrated freedom as part of the Passover seder, but any look at a newspaper these days provides a reminder that the topic is as relevant as ever.

    Inspired by the mass uprisings in Egypt and elsewhere in North Africa and the Middle East, more than 150 people gathered...

  • Valentine’s Day Peep Show!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 14, 2011 | 6:14 pm

    I really don’t like Valentine’s Day!  I hate everything about it, the stupid, corny Hallmark cards, the over-priced flowers, the overcrowded restaurants, the need to out-do each other with pricey gifts, etc…  I am not saying that we shouldn’t show our love for the people in our...

  • Great Doctor must not exist!

    By Julia Bendis

    January 4, 2011 | 6:05 pm

    Don’t you just love when you visit a Doctor, and he tells you to go ahead and call him if you need anything else?  I am still pretty shocked when I hear any Doctor say that, since most of them want you to come back, pay money, and THEN they will answer your questions, even if you’ve...

  • Fast meals to beat the Kol Nidre rush

    September 18, 2008 | 2:25 am

    It's a scramble every year, but Jews somehow manage to beat the clock getting dinner to the table on Yom Kippur eve -- the most hurried meal on the holiday calendar.

    It isn't easy to conclude the evening meal with enough leeway to arrive at synagogue for the Kol Nidre service, which...

  • Atoning for the sin of rushing dinner to get to Kol Nidre

    By Linda Morel

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    I consider Yom Kippur eve the sandwich holiday. Not because I would ever serve my family and friends sandwiches before going to synagogue on the eve of a solemn fast. I see the start of Yom Kippur this way, because it's sandwiched between two days of Rosh Hashanah celebrations and...
  • Meat meets lemon—brisket gone wild!

    By Holly Wiland

    September 14, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    One day last month, my husband returned from Trader Joe's carrying a large slab of brisket.

    "I invited our neighbors for dinner," he announced, "and they're kosher." I can cook, but my only attempt at a nice bubbie-style brisket took two days and was a memorable disaster. I'm sure...

  • Déja Date

    By Amy Klein

    May 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    They say that familiarity breeds contempt, but I'm thinking that when you meet so many strangers in so short a time, familiarity might just breed comfort. You see a guy's picture 20 times, you begin to feel you know him. Maybe the first time he wrote to you, you weren't sure about...

  • PASSOVER FOOD: Treats to Leaven Desire for Dessert

    By Judy Zeidler

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Passover desserts are a challenge to the cook because so many ingredients are forbidden, among them flour, grain, cornstarch, baking powder or baking soda. So we substitute matzah meal, potato starch and versatile fresh egg whites to bake all of those traditional favorites -- and...

    My guy Scott dined with his friend Kate and her fiance Steve. No biggie. She's an old friend, she's taken. Nothing to worry about. I'm not jealous. It's cool. Till he adds, "She made this puttanesca sauce from scratch. It was really good. It had peppers and tomatoes and basil. It's a...

    November 10, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    When Dom Perignon invented the creme de la creme of spirits in the 17th century, little did he know that the drink he discovered while trying to eradicate those "irksome bubbles" from his wine would be considered so romantic that wedding guests wouldn't think of toasting generations...

  • Villaraigosa a Yemenite?

    By Bobbi Murray

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    The energy and enthusiasm of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa got ahead of his staff when, at a Rosh Hashanah dinner with consular officials, he suddenly announced his intention to lead a local delegation to Israel.

    The pledge had raced across newswires for several days and...

    By Tom Tugend

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In the 1930s, with the Great Depression at home and Hitler saber-rattling overseas, George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, two sharp-witted Jewish lads, kept Broadway and the nation laughing.

    Together, they wrote such comedic classics as "Once in a Lifetime," "The Man Who Came to Dinner,"...
