My Personal Shabbat Project (its in the Tomato Dip Recipe below)

NJOP is a very special organization that is near and dear to my heart.  Their Hebrew Reading Crash Course changed the course of my life in the most wonderful ways.  They can change your life too.

This Friday night, March 2, 2012 is their annual Shabbat Across America.  This year they have added the Shabbat Project where you can share with others on their interactive website how you are joining in this special Shabbat celebration.

Here’s how I make Friday night & Shabbat extra special for my family & friends.

First, its in the hot & steamy homemade chicken soup, then in the spiritually infused handmade challah and finally with the fresh homemade tomato dip to accompany the challah (tomato dip recipe below).

Tomato Dip Recipe


3-5 fresh, soft,  ripe plum tomatoes (any ripe tomatoes are fine but these always end up tasting the best)

3-5 fresh cloves of garlic

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 – 2 teaspoons Sea Salt


Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix on medium for 30 seconds.  Adjust salt and garlic to taste. Enjoy! Makes about 2 cups of tomato dip.

Tell us in the comments below, how do you make Friday night & Shabbos extra special?
