Yom Kippur Recipe - Chicken Soup with Kreplach

As Yom Kippur is a fast day, we have a special meal before the observance that helps remind us of the true meaning of this holy day. Before the fast begins at sunset, we traditionally eat kreplach, meat-filled dumplings.

Tarato (Yogurt Soup)

Tarato comes from Bulgaria. The Jews of Bulgaria, like those of Holland, Greece, Turkey, and Italy, are descended from Jews expelled from Spain and Portugal in the 15th century. This cold soup is particularly suitable for hot summer nights in Israel. Yogurt, the main ingredient, has been a popular food in Israel for many years.

Meat Borscht

Meat borscht comes from Russia and is a winter favorite. It is cooked for several hours on a low flame and its pungent aroma penetrates every corner of the home. It has become popular to serve hot borscht at parties at the stroke of midnight. No one wanting to miss this treat will go home before that hour. The influx of thousands of newcomers from the former Soviet Union in recent years has reinforced the popularity of the various types of borscht in Israel.
