Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month - The February Tzedakah of the Month is Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to stay and call home at little or no cost so they can be close by to their seriously ill or injured hospitalized child. By staying at Ronald McDonald House parents can better communicate with their child's medical team and solely focus on the health of their child. Please give generously to the Tzedakah boxes located in the synagogue lobby and outside the youth lounge.

PACK IT UP FOR HATZILU

Hatzilu provides food, provisions, financial aid, social work assistance and emotional support to Jews in need in Nassau County. It is located in Baldwin, Long Island. This winter in conjunction with TANS (Tikkun Alliance of the North Shore- composed of 14 other synagogues), we will be collecting Boxes of Tissues (our goal is 100 boxes!) to help fill their pantry. Each of the other synagogues will be collecting other paper products and household items and together we will "Pack it up for Hatzilu." There will be an event on Sunday, March 4th at the Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center located in Roslyn from 10:30am to 12:00pm where we will need volunteers to help assemble packages to be delivered to Hatzilu. Details of this event will be in the February Shalom.

** Please when you are in the food or drug store, pick up an extra box or two of tissues and bring them to the bins which will be located outside the Youth Lounge **



We thank you again for your efforts and support,

Purim Carnival!

This rich challah dough is not formed into braids for the High Holy Days, rather it is shaped in the form of a turban or snail. This is symbolic of the hope that the year will be filled with continuous good health and well being. If the challah is made into one very large challah there is the risk that the center will be under baked or the outer ring will be dry and over baked depending on the baking time you choose. I never use more than 2/3 of the dough to make a large challah.

challahwebsite Ingredients

    7- 7 1/2 cups bread flour, King Arthur or Gold medal Better for Bread
    2 packages rapid rise yeast
    1 1/2 cups water
    2 sticks parve margarine or butter
    1/4 teaspoon yellow food coloring
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 Tablespoons poppy seeds
    1 Tablespoon salt
    4 large eggs
    1 cup raisins, optional
    EGG WASH-1 egg mixed with 1 Tablespoon water and 1 teaspoon of honey

Preparation Instructions

    In a large mixer bowl combine 6 1/2 cups of the flour and the yeast. Stir to combine.
    Heat the water, margarine, food coloring, sugar, poppy seed and the salt in a saucepan until very warm (140F). Water should be uncomfortably hot to your finger but not hot enough to burn you.(It will feel like hot tap water).
    Add the warm liquid mixture to the flour while the mixer is on low. As the liquid is being incorporated, add the eggs. Mix thoroughly.
    Gradually add the remaining flour only until a fairly firm dough is formed. This process should take about 7 minutes whether you are using the dough hook on your mixer or are kneading it by hand. The mixture will be satiny smooth and will not stick to a lightly floured finger tip when touched. If adding raisins, add after 5 minutes of kneading
    Turn your oven on for 1 minute.  TURN YOUR OVEN OFF.  Lightly grease a bowl with oil and turn the dough in the bowl to oil all sides. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the TURNED OFF oven until doubled in size, about 30-45 minutes.
    Punch down the dough and divide in half or thirds. Divide each portion into 1 large rope and coil the dough around itself to make a round of dough that looks like a turban. Make sure to pinch the end of the dough under to prevent uncoiling during baking. Place formed breads on a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper and allow to rise until light and doubled, about 25 minutes.
    Preheat the oven to 375F. Brush the tops of the loaves with the egg wash and bake for 25-35 minutes depending on the size of the loaves. When the bread is done, it will be golden brown and have a hollow sound when tapped.
