The ‘Forward’ Debuts Yiddish Cooking Show

Ess gezunterhait!

Print Email

The Forward’s Yiddish edition has debuted what may be the first Yiddish cooking show on the Internet. In the pilot episode of Eat in Good Health (Ess Gezunterhait), which is hosted by two of the paper’s writers, Rukhl Schaechter and Eve Jochnowitz, we learn how to make sour cherry varenikes, a kind of dumpling (the recipe is borrowed from The Molly Goldberg Jewish Cookbook). Did you know that Yiddish distinguishes much more sharply between sweet and sour cherries than English does? Can you tell a varenike from a varnishke? (The former’s dough is made from potatoes, while the latter’s is kasha-based.) The varenikes look great. I won’t spoil the rest.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
