One of the most beautiful passages in this week’s parsha, concerns the bird and her young. We are told: If you should encounter a bird’s nest and the mother is sitting with her baby birds or upon the eggs, you shall not take the mother upon the young, but should send the mother away before taking any eggs. The reward for this act of compassion is a long life. Live long and prosper.

This week we’re going to give the birds a break, but I can’t resist the opportunity to include a few nests and egg recipes that will leave your guests squawking for more.
