Best of the Week

When I was a kid, the worst week of the year was the week before Passover. My mom would stop shopping and all we would eat was leftovers. It was rough. I’m still pretty scarred. And hungry.

Speaking of eating as a kid, I’ve gotta admit, I’ve always loved gefilte fish (except for the end piece on the roll…that’s just gross). Except as a kid, I always ate it plain, fearful of the wrath of horseradish. But boy was I wrong. Chrein is a highlight of any Jewish meal. Don’t know what it is? Well, learn more about it and make your own.

David Shneer doesn’t visit places like a normal tourist. That’s why he is known as the Radical Jewish Traveler. Check out his visit to Jewish Sweden and learn some crazy facts about a community which few know about.

Finally, if you’re nervous this week about kashering your kitchen for Passover because you don’t know what to do (or maybe you just need a little refresher), have no fear. My Jewish Learning is here (to teach you).
