Yom Kippur: Before and After the Fast

Posted By elizabeth On September 12, 2010 @ 2:30 am In Blog,Feedburner | 2 Comments

Although we don’t have to cook for Shabbos this year, we still need hearty meals before and after the fast. When we were first married and living in the Old City in Jerusalem, I made an elaborate dairy meal before the fast. Then, one of my husband’s rebbeim told him that since it was a seudas mitzvah, we should be eating meat. I ran to the markolet, grabbed a frozen chicken (if you have lived or live in Israel you know the ones I mean!) and spent Erev Yom Tov desperately defrosting and cooking it. I won’t make that mistake again. Our family “tradition” is have Oven-Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and another mild vegetable. Watermelon is our dessert of choice – juice and refreshing without the thirst-inducing danger of sugary treats.

After most fasts I made a pareve minestrone soup to which my kids love to add grated cheese. But after Yom Kippur, you need something more. It hasn’t just been a physical effort but a tremendous spiritual one as well and our bodies need rejuvenation. Try this hearty soup to replenish your energy.
