I just got back from a Shabbos spent in Monsey, New York, the first time I spent a Shabbos there in many years. When I got there in the afternoon, I davened at the Vizhnitz shtiebel (little shul), 2 houses down, because my hosts were still at the Yeshiva and I wasn’t sure where I was going. I was the only married man there without a serious shtreimel: those round, fur trimmed hats that mark a man as an out and proud Hasidic Jew. Nothing says “Jew” quite like a shtreimel does.
(JTA) — “Make Hummus, Not War.”
I’m a sucker for hummus, on EVERYTHING — my eggs, my salads, my burgers, my bagels, my gefilte, my roasted veg and my falafel, of course! Sometimes I schmear it; sometimes I dip it. Sometimes I serve it with tahini and schug, sometimes with za’atar chickpeas and sometimes with roasted red peppers. But most always I serve it with a dusting of sumac or paprika, a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of fresh torn parsley or coriander leaves.
It’s past my bedtime, but I’ve been glued to the TV tonight, watching the news unfold. Seriously, if you blink you miss something HUGE.
So you’re going to Israel, and you love hummus, and you love falafel, and you can’t wait to eat a lot of hummus and falafel, and your cousin’s uncle’s sister-in-law knows the best place for hummus and falafel, and so on.
