The Paris prosecutor said, "We do not dismiss any hypothesis. A preliminary examination of the elements of the crime does not reveal an anti-Semitic characteristic, but this possibility has not been discounted as police investigate further," said a spokesperson for the Jewish Community Protection Ser- vice, which works closely with the French police. "The barbarity of this murder sends us back to that of Sarah Halimi just one year ago," said Francis Kalifat, president of Crif. He urged "the fullest transparency" by the authorities investigating the killing, "so that the mo- tive of this barbarous crime is known as quickly as possible." Joel Mergui, president of the Jewish Consistory, said he doesn't want "to allow to reproduce the silence that followed the assassination of Sarah Halimi a year ago in the same district." The World Jewish Congress also called on French authori- ties to show full transparency in the investigation. Its CEO, Robert Singer, Mireille Knoll said, "The World Jewish Con- gress stands together with the French Jewish community in deploring the horrific and barbaric murder of an elderly Holocaust survivor in Paris this week, and in calling on the French authorities to dem- onstrate full transparency in the ongoing investigation, to ensure that the motivation behind this heinous crime is known as soon as possible, and that is treatedwith the utmost seriousness it deserves."

My take on chocolate espresso truffles combines a velvety chocolate base with just enough espresso flavor to give you your caffeine fix. The fact that this version is vegan, kosher for Passover and healthy (no added sugar!) is just icing on the cake. I make these truffles with whatever nuts I have on hand (hazelnuts are to die for and make them taste like Nutella). Roll them in cocoa powder, unsweetened shredded coconut, shaved dark chocolate--or all three! Ingredients: i cup cashews 1/2 cup almonds I cup pitted medjool dates (roughly 10-12, depending on size) 1/4 cup cocoa powder, plus 1/2 cup for coating I teaspoon ground coffee Directions: 1. Combine the cashews and almonds in a food processor and process until very finely ground. With the motor running, add the pitted dates one by one until a consolidated dough begins to form. Add the cocoa powder and ground coffee, and process until fully incorporated. 2. Working with 1 tablespoon of dough at a time, roll the dough into balls. Pour 1/2 cup cocoa powder into a shallow dish and roll the balls around until coated. Serve at room temperature or place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Makes 15.
