shabbos dinner

I have been with relatives in my home town the past month- first due to winter break then due to shiva (since my father died the day before I was about to return to Pittsburgh).  So this will be my first shabbos dinner at home in over a month.

In this week’s Torah portion, the Jews have a lamb for the first Passover sacrifice (Exodus 12:21) and are commanded to eat matzoh on Pesach.  So I am having lamb riblets and matzoh of course.

Because the Egyptians suffered the plague of darkness (10:22) I am having black beans.

And because the Hebrews borrowed silver and good (12:35) from the Egyptians, I am having herring (silver) and potato sticks (gold) and colored marshmallows (a bit of gold).

    Sorry to hear that you lost your father. May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
