THE MARCH OF THE LIVING

Shalom,

My sister, Marcia Tatz Wollner, has led March of the Living trips to Poland and Israel for over 10 years. This is a great opportunity for any 11th-12th graders you may know ~ think children, grandchildren, nieces/nephews, etc. Do not hesitate to contact Marcia for more information if you are at all interested.
Janet

The March of the Living is a two-week journey to Poland and Israel. In Poland, along with survivors, the teens visit Nazi concentration camps and become “witnesses” to the Holocaust. While in Poland, the teens commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day with a silent march between Auschwitz and Birkenau.

In Israel, the teens visit historic and contemporary sites to learn about the creation of the Jewish State, celebrating its existence and meaning of the continuity of the Jewish people. While in Israel the teens observe Yom HaZikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day and celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day.

Since its inception in 1988, this journey has become the world’s single largest Jewish education program for 11th and 12th graders attracting over 10,000 participants annually from all over the world.

The dates for this year’s MOTL are May 1- May 15, 2016. The cost, including domestic travel is $6375. Teen will be able to take the AP tests upon their return to the United States.

Applications are available on line, http://www.motlthewest.org

WENDY’S PUMPKIN SOUP

EDITOR’S NOTE: This was a big hit at our potluck last Saturday evening.

Note From Wendy: I doubled this recipe but here is the base. Most of it came to me without many measurements (only the first 4 ingredients had measurements) but I will tell you approximately what I used:

1/2 stick butter

1 onion

16 oz pumpkin (I used fresh pumpkin that I cooked and strained)

4 cups stock (I made my own vegetable stock)

1 bay leaf

sugar (I used about 1 tablespoon maple syrup instead of sugar for the double recipe but the amount of sugar is up to you)

curry (I used a tablespoon for the double recipe but the amount was not given to me in this recipe)

nutmeg (I ground my own and used about 1 teaspoon for the double recipe)

salt – a pinch

The recipe also calls for 2 cups sour cream that I didn’t use at all. I have made it using half and half and that was good too.

That is how the recipe came to me. I sautéed the onion in the butter, then added the rest of the ingredients, simmered for about 30 minutes and then used my blender stick to puree it (after I took out the bay leaf).

It came from my neighbor – we exchange recipes quite a bit.
