Jewish Recipes

It is #Tuesdaytips, and with it being late September, we are in the midst of many Jewish holidays. As you all know, we are a very inclusive company and all about education. The more you know and can understand the closer we can bridge communities. While I can vent on that aspect, I won’t. Having conversations and a level of knowledge is great but learning about other religions also covers cultures, history and geography.

Now I personally are up in a household that was very inclusive. My mother is jewish, my father is christian, I am pagan, but we celebrate all holidays. We were always around different cultures, especially having gone to school by the United Nations. Even today, I have friends all over the world. The wonderful thing is that even as I homeschool Matthew, we have met people from all walks of life. We get to zoom and write postcards, which is so fun.

Anyway, bringing us back to the Jewish Holidays, I wanted to bring you a round up of traditional jewish dishes to bring into your own learning.

You can learn more about each holiday in the lesson section on our website or under Judaism.
