Parsha Emor discusses the cycle of holidays: the weekly Shabbat, Passover, Shavuoth, Rosh HaShana, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret. Immediately following this is a discussion of the menorah and the lechem hapanim.
My first thought was of the pizza called quattro stagioni (four seasons), and I thought of a pizza called Shalosh Regalim. I may still do this with my kids, but they weren’t so into it yesterday. My husband loves cherry pie, so I went with a (cherry) pie chart of the different holidays.
There is a challah, candlesticks, and a kiddush cup for Shabbos, a shmura matzoh for Pesach, luchot for Shavuoth, a shofar (this is how Rosh haShana is referenced in the parsha), and there was a scale for Yom Kippur that just didn’t make it because it was too delicate. Of course, there is a sukkah for Sukkot, plus a tiny etrog and lulav. The last section has a menorah.
The pie crust is made from coconut butter, egg yolk, salt, sugar, flour and ice water. More details to follow. . .
