This week, in celebration of Parshat Noah – in which we read the Torah portion that includes the story of Noah’s ark – we have the perfect excuse to eat the rainbow! “When I see My rainbow in the clouds I will recall the Covenant that exists between Me, you and every living soul on earth,” reads a line from this beautiful and significant passage.
Many families have taken this symbolism and made it fun and delicious for their families, preparing an array of rainbow-themed treats and dishes. Here are a few of our favorites to celebrate with this Shabbat:
Pronounced: ark, Origin: English, the place in the synagogue where the Torah scrolls are stored, also known as the aron kodesh, or holy cabinet.
Pronunced: TORE-uh, Origin: Hebrew, the Five Books of Moses.
