52 Shab­bats: Fri­day Night Din­ners Inspired by a Glob­al Jew­ish Kitchen invites every­one to hon­or Shab­bat with a spe­cial meal on Fri­day evenings. It has more than 90 mod­ern recipes (includ­ing many veg­e­tar­i­an options) that add fla­vor and mean­ing to the Shab­bat or hol­i­day table. Let 52 Shab­bats be your guide if you have ever thought about start­ing, shar­ing, or expand­ing your cel­e­bra­tion of Shab­bat, or just adding to your Jew­ish food reper­toir. The book’s many essays and sto­ries also explore Shab­bat tra­di­tions, the Jew­ish cal­en­dar, and the sym­bol­ism of foods in Judaism, offer descrip­tions of Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ties around the world, and inves­ti­gate the glob­al Jew­ish pantry.
