Chocolate lovers on your gift list will be delighted to take a deep dive into the delicious topic of Jews and chocolate, with the newly released 2nd edition of “On the Chocolate Trail: A Delicious Adventure Connecting Jews, Religions, History, Travel, Rituals and Recipes to the Magic of Cacao” (Jewish Lights Publishing, 2017). Written by Forward contributor Rabbi Deborah R. Prinz, the book offers a fascinating look into the connections between Jews and chocolate throughout history, starting with the early chocolate trade.

Jewish mothers are, of course (at least according to the stereotype) forever feeding their progeny. What if you could turn the (kitchen) table on yours this Mother’s Day, celebrating her with a gift of ongoing culinary delights? We found a great way for you to do just that, in the form of a wide range of food-or-drink-of-the-month clubs. From baked goods to wine to spices, there’s something to suit every personality and taste — and your mother will think of you fondly every time a delicious delivery arrives at her door.
