Well, not THE menu, but the pre-yom kippur menu. This year shabbos and yom kippur coincide, so no shabbos cooking for us this week. But we will eat a festive meal right before yom kippur starts, and here 'tis:
basmati rice and preserved lemons
steamed veggie (carrots??)
Then 25 hours of not eating or drinking. I really do love yom kippur. To me, the air crackles and hashem's presence is very close. The liturgy is the most beautiful and moving of the whole year. It's a very special time for the Jewish people.
A chatima tova and a tzom kal to all who are fasting!
