HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, SEPTEMBER 29, 2017 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or Ronald S. Lauder I received this letter "As the Jewish year 5777 comes to an end, we must dig deep to find optimism for world Jewry in the coming year," is how it began. It was from RONALD S. LAUDER, President, World Jewish Congress. I think it is important and thought provok- ing enough to pass it along to you (in part): "Thanks to you (meaning all of us), despite having another difficult and tumultuous year, the Jewish people moved forward with unity, strength and great resolve. As troubling as this past year was, it could have been far worse had it not been for the vigilance of WJC supporters like you. At the same time, we cannot forget that in countries like France, Hungary, Great Britain, Canada and even the United States, anti-Semitism, hatred, intolerance and violence are on the rise and must be confronted. As Jews, we cannot sit idly by as those who wish to do us harm plot and scheme and recruit others to perpetrate brutal acts of terror. Not now when anti-Semitism has reached unprecedented levels in countries and communities where such incidents were once considered unimaginable. Not now When Jews in far too many corners of the world are considering leaving their home countries out of fear for their personal safety. Not now when far right and anti-Semitic political parties have become competitive in many nations around the world, particularly in Europe. And not now when online hate and anti-Semitism are growing and spreading exponentially inciting disaffected young people and others to commit acts of hatred, bigotry, violence and terror. As Jews, we know that throughout history, difficult economic and social conditions have given rise to extremists who make promises of a better future while hiding their real agenda, one that promotes hate and bigotry." (Sound familiar?) Hooray for Sears The Sears department stores removed from their sales website sweatshirts and t-shirts emblazoned with the slogan "Free Palestine, End Israeli Occupation" and featuring a fist in the colors of the Palestinian flag. A Sears representative told the WJC that the company committed to immediately pulling the shirts, which were available for sale on through third-party seller What we need now is laughter I wrote about the JCC Laughter Club before but it should be written about again, especially as the world news is getting more upsetting. The Laughter Club takes place in the Group Exercise Studio of The Roth Family JCC in Maitland at 12:15 p.m. It is free for JCC members and it can really help tooreduce stress! (Laughter is healthy, yes it is I laugh every day when I look in the mirror. No comments, please!) Meet & Mingle Mondays On Monday, Oct. 9th, the JCC 39ers will be treated to avideo, "Astory of Guatemala," presented by SUSAN BERNSTEIN. Itwill be followed, as usual, by refreshments.

I don't blame these people one bit. But Sukkot probably is my favorite holiday of the season to cook for--I love sitting outdoors in the brisk autumn air, enjoying harvest-inspired dishes with friends and family. This dish is (pretty) easy, totally unique and delish. The husband, who is by far my harshest critic, was in love with this recipe and begged for me to make another batch. Burekas are an easy appetizer to throw together using store- bought puff pastry. If you don't like ground lamb, substitute ground beef. You can also make a vegetarian version by using tofu or feta cheese with the squash. You can make burekas ahead, freezing them once they are assembled, but before the egg wash. Before the holiday or when ready to bake, glaze with egg wash and pop in the oven per directions below They also reheat well in the oven at a low temperature and can even be served at room temperature. Ingredients: 2 sheets store-bought puff pastry, |eft to thaw at room temperature around 30 minutes 1/2 pound ground lamb 2 cups cookedpureed or mashed butternut squash (can also use sweet potato or frozen butternut squash) I tablespoon olive oil I small onion 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon Pinch red pepper flakes 1/4 teaspoon salt i egg beaten for glaze Sesame seeds, niglla seeds or poppy seeds (optional) Directions: Heat olive oil in a aut pan over medium heat. Saut onion until translucent. Ad spices to pan and cook until toasted, around 1 minute. Ad ground lamb and cook until no longer pink, breaking up im small pieces with a wooden spoon as you cook. Remove frm heat and allow to cool slightly. Combine butternt squash and lamb mixture in a medium bowl. Preheat oven to F. Roll out each she t of puff pastry. Cut each sheet into 9 even squares. Using ~ rolling pin, roll out each square slightly. Scoop 1 heaping t blespoon into the corner of each square. Fold puff pastry overfilling, forming a triangle. Using the tines of~ fork, crimp the edges. Repeat with secon sheet of puff pastry. Brush each burek with beaten egg Top with sesame seeds, nigella seeds or pop seeds if desired. Bake 18-22 minutzs, until golden on top.
