Jewish holidays center around a home-cooked meal. Often these recipes are passed down for generations and create special memories. In advance of Passover, we would like to ask everyone to discuss their favorite Passover recipe and the memory it creates. If you wish to email your recipe to Meredith Chandler at, we will compile them to share. Ayelet Connell will facilitate a discussion around Passover cooking, adding the contemporary concepts of health and ways to make kosher for Passover foods more appealing to non-Jewish relatives. We will then taste some new recipes together!
