By Avi Katz for JoyofKosher

 

Who would've thought of combining the American classic hot dog with a famous Israeli food? Only a chef who thinks outside the box. 

You must try this unique combination of wrapping falafel around a hot dog and frying it to golden perfection. The falafel dog, created by my mentor Chef Shelly Ostrow of Holy Cow in Memphis, TN, is a Southern favorite with an Israeli twist which your whole family will enjoy.

What's With The Cheese

Posted on July 30th, 2018
From Jewish Treats


There are few types of food with as many variations as cheese. Like all dairy products, only cheese that has been made with the milk of a kosher animal can be kosher. (For those celebrating August’s National Goat Cheese Month, that’s good news, since goats are kosher animals.)

Unlike milk or butter, however, the qualifications for kashrut are a bit more complicated than simply the source of the dairy. In fact, there is a specific prohibition in the Talmud against the consumption of gvinat akum, literally the cheese of heathens.

Mukimame and za'atar patties

By Sarah F. Berkowitz for FromtheGrapevine


These gorgeous green soybean patties make a fabulous meal with a side of tahini and Israeli salad.


Living in the South, I hear a lot about fritters and frying – whether it’s okra, collard greens, fried green tomatoes, or one of many other formerly unknown foods. And I have a lot of fun merging these Southern gems with my Israeli roots – like in these soybean patties spiced with Mediterranean za’atar spice. The tahini drizzle is a perfect finish for these gorgeous, green patties, and a side of Israeli salad makes it a complete meal (pita optional!).

JAMIE GELLER'S NO KNEAD CHALLAH BREAD

Posted on July 16th, 2018
Jamie Geller for The Joy of Kosher



This is the easiest, best tasting challah in the entire world.  This bread is so easy, there is literally no kneading, but you do need to plan ahead.  It is best if you can prep it on Tuesday night so it has 3 days to chillax in the fridge before baking it up fresh on Friday.

Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center

Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center, a Conservative Congregation, celebrating 50 years as a beacon of dynamic Judaism in Dix Hills. We are a traditional egalitarian synagogue committed to the reality that all Jews are full partners in the beauty of Jewish life and that all Jews are given an equal role in all rituals. The Dix Hills Jewish Center is an engaging, vibrant congregation. We are excited about the growth in our synagogue, and the wonderful growth of the Jewish community of Dix Hills, Commack and the neighboring communities. We are a community committed to learning, to supporting each other, and to being a warm and welcoming place for all who participate. Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center.

In Case Of........

Simchas

For joyous occassions in your life, please share your naches with the Rabbi. Inform the Rabbi about births, engagements, weddings and other noteworthy moments in the life of your family. The Rabbi will arrange for baby namings, provide information regarding a mohel ( for infant boys), coordinate a pidyon ha-ben (the redemption ceremony for firstborn males), schedule an aufruf (to celebrate a forthcoming marriage), weddings and bring the richness of Jewish traditions and mitzvoth into your simcha(email rabbi or call 631-499-6644).

Illness

In case of illness and/or hospitalization, please notify the Rabbi at 631-499-6644 (24/6 - on Shabbat, see below for further emergency instructions)

Death

Even before making funeral arrangements notify Rabbi Buechler at the synagogue office at 631-499-6644 (after office hours press #3 for the emergency numbers). Rabbi Buechler will assist and guide you in making the appropriate arrangements for the funeral. In the event that you cannot reach the Rabbi, contact the Jewish funeral home and begin to make your arrangements. PLEASE, if Rabbi Buechler is going to officiate at the funeral, do not finalize the funeral time until the Rabbi has contacted you. At most this will be a few hours. In the event that Rabbi Buechler is on vacation, Cantor Hevenstone is available and other local Conservative Rabbis are on call. Their names can be obtained by calling the synagogue office, an officer of the synagogue or the Ritual Chairman. It is also appropriate to contact Rabbi Buechler whenever tragedy or trauma occurs. On Shabbat and Yomtov the Rabbi does not use the telephone. Therefore, you can convey information to him on these days at the synagogue during scheduled service times, by calling him immediately after Shabbat or Yomtov or by going to his residence.
