Best of the Week

The week has come to a close. Let’s take a quick look at the best articles that you hopefully already read.

Meat is great. Meat on sticks sounds even better. Enjoy the warm Spring days by making yourself some lamb kebobs.

Lag Ba’Omer, the 33rd day of the Omer, is coming up this weekend! Don’t know what it’s all about? We’ve got you covered.

Lag Ba’Omer is a great excuse to have a barbeque. Be like an Israeli and finish off the meal with some grilled pineapple.

My hair is getting long! But it’s definitely not as long as some little Jewish kids who don’t have their hair cut until they are three. The custom is called upsheren, and it’s also associated with Lag Ba’Omer.

Finally, one more recipe for the road. Try making Sabich, a classic Israeli snack made with eggs and eggplant.
