Dear Readers,

April has arrived and Passover is quickly approaching. Before you know it, we’ll be preparing our Seder meals. To spice up this holiday’s fare, we have many pages of delicious recipes for you to peruse. Sarina Roffe shared a few of her favorites, as did Chef Yochanan Lambiase, who also offered several tips to make this Passover go smoothly. We also have recipes from around the world, including M’Joki, a Tunisian stew of lamb and vegetables, Megina, Middle Eastern matzah pies and a classic cake recipe from Istanbul, plus many other exotic dishes. Also for Passover, we have fun crafts for you to do with your children. Spend quality time together while making a beautiful Seder plate or matzah cover.

A few weeks ago, a delegation from our community went to Albany to advocate for yeshivah funding. Joining OU Advocacy and Teach NYS, they met with several politicians, including assemblymen, senators and the lieutenant governor. Read about their adventure on page 40. Have you ever dreamt of saving another person’s life? Renewal, an organization that works with people who need kidney transplants, can help you make that dream come true. The first step is a blood test. Turn to page 58 to read about the plight of a community member who is waiting for a kidney. Our yeshivahs were busy last month. Ahi Ezer students spent a memorable Shabbat at their teacher’s house, the children at MDY Elementary School got to know their new principal, Rabbi Alan Berkowitz, Hillel Yeshiva students baked hamantaschen for the faculty and teens from the Yeshivah of Flatbush visited Spain, Gibraltar and Israel. Be sure to read chapter four of Sam Domb’s autobiography He Hath Not Let Me Die, plus all the news, beauty features, medical updates, etc.

Have a Happy and Healthy Passover,

Ben-Gurion and Rachelle Matsas
