JoyOfKosher’s Thai Beef by Jamie Geller

Prep everything ahead and even cook the meat the night before serving. Make it a meal by serving with a salad and rice or noodles and veggies. Avoid overcooking the steak. This shoulder cut is tender and full flavored when served medium-rare or rare. Serve the meat, thinly sliced with salad, lettuce wraps, rice or Asian noodles and with the remaining marinade drizzled over the top. Make sure to use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita! GLUTEN FREE? Use gluten free soy sauce. Related: Ginger & Garlic Beef Stir Fry Duration: 18 minutes Cook Time: 8 minutes Prep...

YAAKOV THE SOLE HANDLER OF EXCESS BY RAV BRAZIL | PARSHAS VAYISHLACH 

When Yaakov was sending to Eisav his gift of 580 animals to appease him, the passuk tells us ויקח מן הבא בידו מנחה לעשו אחיו that he took from which came in his hand. The description of מן הבא בידו is a little cryptic. Rashi brings the Chazal that the gift of Yaakov included also gems that one ties in a purse and carries it in his hands to which the Baal Haturim adds מנחה is gematriah אבנים. Another interpretation is that this gift of Yaakov only contained items from which Maaser has already been separated. Let us present a new interpretation to the meaning of these words by which we will be able to define clearly the different roles of Yaakov and Eisav. Chazal tell us that even in the womb Eisav and Yaakov had split ideologies. Eisav pursued this world and Yaakov the next. They made a deal between themselves that Eisav would inherit this world and that Yaakov would have the next world. This deal brings us to a big dilemma of how then, can AmYisrael partake from this world and yet it should still not be considered stealing from Eisav’s portion? One answer that’s given is based on the Halacha that if one buys a house in the middle of the field but not the land surrounding it, and he did not stipulate that he is buying the path leading to the house’s entrance, the sale automatically includes the pathway to the house.

25 Year-old Lost Music Tracks! Hashkifa with Yisroel Wiliger and Moshe Medlowitz

25 Years ago, Rabbi Klatzko dabbled in Jewish Music, composing and producing with some of the bigger names. When he became a campus rabbi at UCLA, he stopped in the middle of this project. The files were never finished, then forgotten and lost 🙁 Recently he met the arranger of the music, Avi Fishoff, and expressed remorse that some of his nice stuff was lost forever. When he said, “The files aren’t lost, I have them right here in my phone” Rabbi Klatzko couldn’t believe his ears!!!! We will begin briefly posting of few of these 25-year-old files, including some vintage Abie Rotenberg, Moshe Medlowitz, and Yisrael Williger. Working to clean them up! Hashkifa was slated to be the first song on the album. Please note, these were never completed or mixed. But nice none-the-less. Enjoy a little ancient Jewish...

Father knows best by Rabbi Ari Wasserman | Parsha Vayeishev

Parshas Vayeishev “And [Yosef] refused, and he said to his master’s wife, ‘Behold, with me [here] my master knows nothing about anything in the house, and he has placed everything he has in my hand’” (Bereishis 39:8). Father Knows Best Whereas Yosef’s brothers couldn’t stand him and sold him into slavery, Potifar was so impressed with him that Yosef was soon managing all his Egyptian master’s affairs. Unfortunately, part of this package was Potifar’s wife, who pressured him to join her in betraying her husband. How did Yosef find the inner strength to defy this powerful woman? Chazal tell...
