It takes 48 SECONDS of preparation to make your own lox (cured salmon) and it tastes better than anything you will buy. Make it 2-4 days in advance, buy bagels, baguettes and cream cheeses and eat with this refreshing salad. Make a beautiful platter of sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and purple onions and your very hungry crowd will be happy little clams (or the kosher version of that.)
Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year, when we are closest to Hashem (G‑d) and in touch with our Neshama (souls). Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement,” For nearly 26 hours we don’t eat or drink and we don’t wear leather footwear. It is custom to spend the day in Shul (synagogue) and pray for forgiveness and build or rebuild your relationship with G-d.
