Feel awful? Felafel!

The purpose of this blog is to provide some comfort at the Shabbat table. Please print and share.
 ComfortFirst question for your table this week:

What do people mean by a "comfort food" and do you have one?

Take a look at the kid in this photo.

That's our 13-year-old enjoying his first Jerusalem felafel.

(If you want to know the secret for finding the best felafel in an Israeli town, send me an email.)

The second question for your table:

Why do so many Jews traveling to Israel make a bee-line for the felafel stand?

Is it just the palate, or is there something Jewishly comforting about felafel?

If you can answer that, maybe you can answer the third question of the week:

The experience of food becomes a mere memory, so how great a comfort can it be?

More comfort?

Some people therefore seek comfort in familiar books of wisdom, because wisdom is forever.

But, wouldn't that get tiresome, to revert to the same books again and again?

Shabbat Shalom from Yerushalayim

PS -

PPS - I mentioned last week that I was going to try the popular Travelrest on the plane. Thumbs-up - it performed as advertised.
