In Parsha Emor, we survey the cycle of our Jewish holidays, from Passover to Shavuot, Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur through Succot.  Now that we are literally counting the days until Shavuot when we commemorate the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai we are reminded of  the "omer" barley offering brought in the days of the Temple and referenced in this week's portion.  In remembrance of this grain offering and its symbol of thanksgiving, we offer a delicious  salad that is perfect for a Spring Shabbos!

Shish Kebab


Simple skewers are the perfect answer to your Shabbat lunch, your Yom Haatzmaut or Lag Baomer celebration and even for Memorial Day, this is the month for kebabs!

Lemon Roasted Asparagus


This is the season for delicious asparagus so let's get roasting, these stalks are so perfect when lightly cooked with some olive oil and drizzled with lemon. 

Artichoke Fritters
