  • What is Chanukah?

    It's starting to look a lot like ... Chanukah. Tonight we light the first candle, for it's the first night of this minor, eight-day Jewish holiday that's become a major one in our time. Maybe because of its proximity to Christmas and the temptation to...

    Chan Lowe: Happy Thanksgivukkah!
    They say there won’t be another collision of these holidays for thousands of years, so who am I not to take note, I ask you?   My paper’s website is running a recipe for something called “turbrisket,” which I couldn’t...

    21 deceptively satisfying soups that make a perfect dinner
    Soups are a deceptive thing. You sit down to dinner, someone places a bowl in front of you and your heart falls. How is soup a meal? But very soon, you're reminded of its powers to sate and comfort all at once. In the Holiday Edition of the California...
  • Bubby's Noodle Kugel

    Claire Green from Parkton was looking for a recipe for a noodle kugel like the one she remembers her grandmother making for the Jewish holidays when she was growing up. Kugel is a staple at most Jewish holiday meals — with the exception of...

    The steadfast love a couple showers on their cat and each other underpins "Pascha," an achingly tender film from South Korean helmer-scribe Ahn Seong-kyoung. Depicting the fragile relationship between a 40-year-old femme and a 19-year-old lad, and how...
  • Two perfect Passover sides everyone can enjoy

    Apart from nourishing our bodies and tasting so delicious, food often plays another role: It can tell stories that feed our minds and souls. In this column, I've sometimes shared with you stories of my own life told through recipes: the vegetable soups my...
  • A springtime main dish for Passover

    A springtime main dish for Passover
    I feel it is no coincidence that Passover, the holiday celebrating the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery under Pharaoh, falls around the same time as spring's arrival. After all, Passover observes a miracle of renewal -- the triumph of hope and...
  • We leave Egypt tonight

    Psst, pass it on. Tell the other slaves: We leave Egypt tonight. Walker Percy called it the search. Or at least his alter ego in "The Moviegoer" did. Outwardly, John Bickerson Bolling, or Binx to his friends, was just another stockbroker. Inwardly, he...
  • The loveliest game

    It's an annual ritual yet always different. Like spring itself. Like the first taste of matzah at the Passover seder. It marks renewal. It brings past memories and future hope together in the pure, unblemished present. Like a blank page waiting to be...
  • Of Athens and Jerusalem

    Dear Scholar, It was wholly a pleasure to get your thoughts about the current debate over illegal immigrants and how to approach the nettlesome challenge they represent to us -- and we to them. It was good of you to rehearse some classical history...
