Back by Popular Demand - A Taste of Passover

We’re having the Taste of Passover again this year!  This a great opportunity to share your favorite Passover recipe and collect some new ones.  It’s always great to have something new to try.  It’s also a great way to try a different recipe if you don’t have a favorite. 

There will be a couple tweaks from other years due to helpful feedback from last year. 

  • Bring just one copy of your recipe so everyone can see what is in the dish.  Please include if it is gluten free, dairy free and/or vegetarian.
  • Email your recipe to Elayne in advance of the event and she will collate all the recipes into one file, which she will email to you.  Either type the recipe in the content of the email or attach it in a word document.  Include a title for the recipe and what category you would like the recipe to be listed under:  breakfast, main dish, appetizer, side dish, vegetable, dessert, snack, beverage, or other. 
  • Include your RSVP to the event when you email Elayne.
  • On the night of the event, just bring your dish, one copy of the recipe, and your appetite.

Let’s Yak about Yiddish!

Sunday, April 23rd, 2-4 pm at Congregation Har HaShem South Building

All ages welcome. No cost. No knowledge of Yiddish required.

Are you curious or nostalgic about the Yiddish language and the culture of Yiddishkeit? Where did this special language come from?  Some of us heard this in our homes when our parents didn’t want us to understand what they were saying, some used it to express a feeling or description that just doesn’t have any translation into English. Did it come from multiple places? Is it still an evolving language? 

Join us for this fun and interactive look at the Yiddish language and how it’s still being incorporated into our daily lives. We will be joined by professional storyteller and Holocaust child survivor Rosalyn Kirkel who leads a Yiddish speakers club in Denver.

Bring your stories and vocabulary. We’ll supply the nosh. If you miss it, you may just feel verklempt!
