Dramatic Deserts

Shira Yehudit Djlilmand

The lure of the mysterious desert - miles after miles of sand with the baking sun beating down. Sounds exotic, doesn’t it? Well, you might be surprised to learn that not only are not all deserts made of sand, some are also distinctly cold!

 

Shavous

Rochel Gross

We’ve been counting the days eagerly, and finally, after forty-nine days, Shavuos is here! On this day thousands of years ago, we all stood around Har Sinai and received the most valuable gift in the world – our precious Torah – directly from Hashem.

 

Lettuce Salad With Creamy Dressing

Leora Gruen

Here’s is a salad perfect for a milchig Shavuos seudah. Prepare the dressing and vegetables separately and mix them together just before you serve the salad. If you have extra dressing, it's yummy with cut up veggies. Enjoy!
