Was Friday night special in your house?
I want to know what your family traditions for Friday night Shabbat dinner are or were.

What kinds of foods were served?

What blessings or prayers or other customs did or does you or your family observe?

Share your Shabbat story and help create a guidebook/cookbook for other folks to create a similar space for themselves.

If you have something to share, have a question or would like more information, please leave a comment on any post below or email me at clickblogappetitATgmailDOTcom. You can read more about the 52 Shabbats project here.

Maybe this year?

Well I just renewed the domain registration so I hope that means this is the year I put my ideas and recipes into action for this site!

Keep Your Shabbat Meals Within the Faith

I'm a big believer that meals for Shabbat and holidays should reflect the Jewish food traditions for kasruth, such as not mixing of meat and milk and avoiding shellfish and pork.

If you need some help on understanding the basic rules and regs of Kosher 101, check out this list from Manichewitz.

If you only eat "kosher style" sometimes or observe kasruth full time, the rules and traditions connect us back to our ancestors and add to our level of observance, which I think is a very good thing.

A Year of 52 Shabbats and Looking Forward

It's been a year since I started this blog and project.
I wish I could say I've written and shared more, but I  have been thinking, plotting and conceptualizing.
I just renewed the domain name and I really believe in the concept, so I hope to move forward this next year.
My first step is to post at least once a month a "Shabbat" story with recipes.
If you have one you'd like to share, please let me know.

Shabbat Dinner on May 27

I always forget to post my menu here -- anyway this last shabbat we had spicy tomato soup with bamba surprise, chicken with curry spices and tomatoes and greens, brown basamati rice, chopped salad with veggies and tamarind salad dressing and oranges and dates.  I'll link to the recipes when they post over at Blog Appetit.

What have you had for Shabbat lately?

Dawn's Shabbat Dinner

We had a wonderful shabbat dinner at Dawn's house.  The menu, spice-rubbed roast chicken and chocolate banana bread, has been a staple of hers for 20 plus years. Please read more about it on the post on my general food blog, Blog Appetit.  Do you serve pretty much the same menu or do you like to vary it up?

One World One Shabbat

Chabad is sponsoring "One World One Shabbat" with the idea to give all Jews a taste of "world to come."  The site has very little info here.  If you are interested, you might want to contact your nearest Chabad branch or local Jewish Community Center.

If you are participating, I'd love to hear about it and your experience.  Please leave a comment and or email me at clickblogappetitATgmailDOTcom
