Israeli humanitarian aid organization Latet, along with Channel 24/Mako and other corporate sponsores are hoping to provide 200,000 Israeli families with a holiday meal this Passover.
Tel Aviv's Kikar Rabin is filled with shopping carts this week in an effort to raise funds to feed those in need for Passover. Feel free to come to the kikar with food items or contribute via a virtual shopping cart on the Latet website. The site is in Hebrew. Although the English version doesn't have virtual shopping carts contributions can be made.

A Bacon Wrapped Matzo Ball????Top Chef Ilan Hall serves a bacon wrapped matzo ball at his LA restaurant, The Gorbals. You’ll have to use this link to read the story….. So as not to violate National Public Radio permission policy I am not cut and pasting this story in its entirety.I don’t think I can even use a photograph from NPR without permission.
My favorite recipe matzah ball recipe follows:
4 large eggs
½ cups seltzer
2 tablespoons chicken fat or vegetable oil
1 cup matzah meal
Salt and pepper per taste
Mix the eggs well with a fork. Add the chicken fat or oil, soda water, matzah meal and the salt and pepper. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Dip your hands in cold water and make about 12 balls slight small than ping pong balls. Bring water to boil in a large pot. Add salt to water and place the matzah balls in the water. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes.
