Chokin’ Down Cholent
The stew that rhymes with Jew
Because of course Yeshiva University held a Cholent Cook-Off. The Shabbat stew—commonly containing such staples as beef, potatoes, beans, and more potatoes—is delicious, nutritious, and (with apologies to the same-named blog) Jewlicious. After a three-way tie, the school’s president awarded first place to Team Heerlijk (the word is Flemish for “delicious,” but surely you already knew that). Attendees leaving the competition last Thursday were left to ponder the question: Is cholent not eaten on a Saturday really cholent? Who says they don’t discuss serious things in school anymore!
Plus a flashpoint J’lem shul, the right hits Obama, and more in the news
