Chillul Tefila Bifarhesia, as well as halachicly challenged verbiage and dress, are external manifestations of a critical lack of personal yiras shomayim which has lethal consequences.
Few things say summer like a barbecue does. The sounds and smells
of grilling food shout summer so loudly, we think people are crazy if they
barbecue in the winter. So, what do you put on the grill if you want to eat
healthy? Grilled chicken is a great choice if you are looking to cut down on
fat and calories, but believe or not, so are franks. Abeles and Heymann
(OU glatt) has beef franks with less fat and sodium than turkey franks.
And lest you think there is less taste, this past Sunday we had
company for supper. Altogether there were eight kids at the table ? some
of them very picky eaters ? they devoured the franks without a second
thought. There is absolutely no difference in taste between these and the
regular high fat and calorie frankfurters.
One of our tasters also had the opportunity to try an Abeles and
Heymann product called Cervelat, which is described as an aromatic
summer sausage. She added this meat to a parve omelet one night and
said that her company was amazed at the taste. The blend of herbs and
spices added so many flavors to the dish that people came back for
seconds and thirds. Abeles and Heymann also have a full line of deli
products, including mustards. In my house, the Sweet and Tangy
mustard has become a staple. My children put it on everything from
chicken to steak. You can find their products in your local supermarket,
kosher grocery or on the web at www.abeles-heymann.com.
Another summer staple is camp packages. Any mother with a kid in
camp will tell you how much time she spends looking for interesting
things to include in a package. Enter Bloom's (OU, parve) line of nosh
and cookies. An old family favorite, Bloom's has been around since I was
a kid ? they make everything from salt-water taffy and fruitie chews to
an amazing array of chewing gum. We tried the sugar free gums in a
number of flavors, but the all-time favorite has to be “ice.” And they taste
just as they sound ? like cool drops of icy mint on your tongue.
Bloom's also has some varieties with a flavored gel in the center, which
my 9-year-old thinks is great. The newest addition to their line ? “Huggy
Bears” ? is something children of all ages can appreciate. They are small
bear shaped graham cookies that come in three flavors. They are low in
fat and calories and taste great. All the Bloom's products can be found in
your local kosher grocery or supermarket.
Summer is also a time to shed extra pounds that may have been
acquired over the dark winter months. Deliciously Slim Natural Foods
(OU dairy) has a selection of low carb, high protein bars to choose from.
They are available in flavors like chocolate fudge cake and chocolate
peanut butter which our tasters say taste as good as any candy bar, with
much less fat and fewer calories. These bars can be found in your local
health food store or online at www.deliciouslyslim.com
Recent research has shown that soy protein has many beneficial
effects. The Asian cultures have used it as staple in their diets for
thousands of years. Now that the soy craze has taken this country by
storm, people are scrambling to use tofu, a product of the soybean.
A novel way of preparing tofu is the brainchild of Sunergia Soy
Foods (MK, parve). This ingenious company is infusing the tofu with the
likes of pesto, Italian herbs and portabella mushrooms. These just some
of their delicious flavors. The tofu contains chunks of the flavoring, and is
The Savory Portabella has a nice portabella flavor. The Italian
Herb, a very versatile flavor, has very pleasant basil and oregano
undertones. The Peanut Ginger is very tasty, and its wonderful texture
contains peanut chunks. The Pesto flavor, this reviewer's favorite, has
rich and robust basil and pine nut taste in every bite. These innovative
products are a delicious way to incorporate healthful soy protein into your
diet. Sunergia products can be found in your local health food store or on
the web at www.sunergiasoyfoods.com.

It’s all over.
The orchestra is still, the lights are dimmed. Your simcha outfits hang in your closet, silent witnesses to a time you will treasure in your mind and heart forever.
Mayonnaise. That’s right, you read it correctly. And I’m sure it’s not the first time you’ve read it, either. And the thought of it has probably made you go ‘”blech.” But this is me saying it, so let’s break it down logically, and you’ll see that the idea isn’t as far-fetched as you might think. [...]
With our focus now turned to the upcoming Pesach holiday, I wanted to share with you some lighter and healthier meal ideas. We have some baked, not fried eggplant, low-carb “rice” created in a unique way, a nice salad and a refreshingly light dessert. I hope this will enhance your Pesach and bring you many nice compliments.
When cooking early for Pesach I always start with foods that require patience and attention, which we have in short supply as Yom Tov gets closer.
So here’s what most of you missed Monday night while you were at home being lazy. The Gush Etzion Wine Festival (have to work on the name) was held in Elazar, which at 20 minutes south of Jerusalem is no big deal to get to.

So there is good news and bad. Which one do you want to hear first? Me? I always want to hear the bad news first. I need to get it over with. So here goes. Purim 2013 is now something we can discuss in the past tense and that can only mean one thing. Actually two.

In 2001, David Ehrlich, an Israeli promotional filmmaker originally from New York, was down on his luck. He and his wife, Gail, a pre-school teacher, had recently moved their family from Jerusalem to Efrat, but the Second Intifada and a dip in the finances of non-profits had thrown a wrench into his business.
Like any other Shepherd’s pie, this vegetarian rendition is just as filling and plentiful.
A green bell pepper affectionately dubbed “Godzilla” by the children of Moshav Ein Yahav in the northern Arava desert has won a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Though the permissibility of watching hired sports players go to battle in a large stadium is a source of controversy amongst Torah observant Jews, the food being served at the upcoming Super Bowl games in New Orleans is not.
We asked our writers and contributors to share some of their favorite “fruit” recipes for Tu B’Shevat.
Artisan gefilte fish.
For some, the phrase seems like an oxymoron. While salmon, chilean sea bass and tilapia may all be in vogue, gefilte fish, the traditional ground fish mixture that is de rigueur in Ashkenazic Jewish households at Shabbos and Yom Tov meals, is like the Henny Youngman of fish: it gets no respect.

The first few post-Pesach days are filled with the hurried rush to consume as much “chometz” as possible – and then the weight concerns begin.

Ever wonder if baking fortune cookies is halchically permitted? I never thought about it, but really how do you know if the ink is kosher? Well, according to HaRav Aviner, it is okay.
