Sweet Round Challah

The traditional holiday and Sabbath bread called challah is usually braided all year long.  On the High Holidays, we make the challah round instead in order to symbolize a whole and perfect year ahead of us.

Baba Ganouj (Eggplant with Tehina)

In Israel, it is not unusual for guests to drop in for a visit without prior notice. In such cases, they are likely to get a light snack or impromptu meal. In anticipation of such contingencies, one such prepared dish is baba ghanouj, which can be found in virtually every Israeli refrigerator.


A typical dish of the Orient brought to Israel by Jewish refugees from Arab countries. Tehina is a thick dip with sesame seeds as its base. It is often used as a topping for falafel and other dishes.
