The Significance and Spirituality of Traditional Jewish Foods
Round matzos on Pesach..."Esther kezel" at "Seudas Esther" (on the second day of Pesach)...bagels on Lag B'Omer...cheese blintzes on Shavuos... When it comes to Shabbos, Yom Tov, and special occasions, our menu is set in tradition. But do you know why some serve tongue on the second day of Pesach? Or the reasoning behind the minhag of eating fried kreplach on Shavuos?
In Seudah Secrets, Rabbi Dovid Meisels, author of the popular Secrets series, shares with us hundreds of customs regarding traditional Jewish foods, as well as the many reasons, all culled from midrashim, Chazal, and the sefarimhakedoshim, for why we eat them. Whether it's as a segulah for health andparnassah, or to help increase one'™s emunah and yirasShamayim, every food we eat that's steeped in mesorah provides us with infinite benefit and brachah. The food that we eat can do so much good not only for our bodies, but for our souls, too!
There's a treasure trove of blessing waiting for you on your Shabbos or Yom Tov table! With Seudah Secrets as your guide, you are hereby invited to uncover it all.
