    Smile Happy Passover!

    The first Seder (if you are celebrating it outside Israel-you have to do it twice) is on Monday evening.
    Passover, Pesach in Hebrew, got its name from the word passed over.
    During the ten plagues, G-D passed over the Jewish houses.
    Passover has 4 names:

    Chag HaPesach/Passover;
    Chag HaAviv/The Holiday of the Spring (it happens on Spring);
    Chag HaMatzot/The Holiday of the Matzas (we eat lots of those during that holiday );
    and
    Chag HaCherut/The Holiday of Freedom.

    May those of you who celebrate this Holiday of Freedom, have:

    A Zissen Pesach!
    Happy Passover!
    !חַג פֶּסַח שָׂמֵחַ


    And it always makes me when tradition meets modernity like in this commercial for the movies channel in Israel.

    How is "tzimmes" pronounced? I will send this recipe to my sister in law. Maybe she can get my brother to try it. He loves sweet potatoes but always ruins them with nasty marshmellows.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    The "tz" is the sound in "tzatziki" or "tzar." The accent is on the first syllable TZIM-mes. The -mes is more like the word "miss"

    Ah, never mind, Merriam-Webster to the rescue with the audio: http://www.merriam-webster.com/cgi-b...01.wav=tzimmes

    Tz sound in Hebrew is equal to the zz sound that you make when you say: pizza.
    This is probably the easier way to explain this sound to English speakers.

    i should be pronounced as ee
    mmes should be pronounced as the word mess.

    I thought "tzimmes" is a Yiddish word. I made some great tzimmes today.

    I'm sure it's delicious but I have doubts about someone (Martha) who measures her rugalach with ruler! Azizen Pesach!
