To bring the community together during the High Holy Days, local food relief charity C Care has developed a special Rosh Hashanah meal for its recipients in collaboration with Ehud Malka from The Left Handed Chef.
C Care is a frontline community organisation that aims to support individuals and families experiencing food insecurity and social isolation.
CEO of C Care Rabbi Shlomo Nathanson has seen firsthand how the holiday period impacts those in need within the Jewish community, and told The AJN, “Over the years at C Care we have seen an increase in requests for support over the holiday periods, with the complexity and severity of needs often intensifying during this period.”
He added, “As we aim to uplift our recipients, with thanks to the support of our community, C Care has created extra special meals and Rosh Hashanah packages to provide for people within our community who are experiencing hardships.”
This Rosh Hashanah, C Care is partnering with Malka to create an extra special meal offering for those in need.
“Being away from family (in Israel) during the holidays always puts emphasis on how important it is for us to be there for each other, and to do whatever we can to make the holidays extra special for everyone.
“I aim to bring extra happiness to people during the chagim through food, hoping to make them smile,” said Malka.
The Left Handed Chef, located in South Melbourne, is a Jerusalem-style hummusiya. The restaurant serves up modern takes on traditional Israeli cuisine, such as hummus bowls, jumbo challah schnitzel sandwich and loaded pita pockets.
This year’s Rosh Hashanah recipe is a spiced stuffed zucchini, topped with pomegranate molasses.
To bring the Jewish community together, C Care is sharing the recipe with everyone.
