In Parsha Balak, we learn how Balak, a Moabite King, selects the prophet Balaam to curse the Jewish people and how Balaam experiences the mysterious ways of Hashem when he and his talking donkey witness an angel standing in the road, with a sword drawn. We are also drawing our swords this week (or at least our skewers). Our Shabbat Menu offers a taste of mint.  These Mint Chutney kabobs are perfect on or off the grill and you can use the same chutney to make the perfect quinoa side.
