Most people don’t like Passover food. It’s usually very bland, with odd textures and way too many eggs. But what if we tell you that there is actually Passover food that is genuinely delicious??! We would even go so far as to suggest that you might want to use some of these recipes even when it’s NOT Passover because you will enjoy them so much!

Baked Potato with Ricotta and Tomatoes

Potato by itself is boring, and you will most likely have enough of it after a few days of Passover. This is why we suggest you spice your potato up with creamy Ricotta cheese and lightly charred roasted tomatoes. Simple, yet mouthwatering!

Crustless Mini Quiches
On Passover, we usually have carb heavy meals. So here is a lighter option, which will still fill you up. All you need are cherry tomatoes, asparagus, milk, whipped cream and cheese. Be sure to make some extra quiches – once you try one, you will probably want seconds (or maybe even thirds).

Spinach Potato Nest Bites
Did you like the sound of the crustless quiches? Then you will love these spinach potato nests. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, you can prepare these cups as a starter, a side dish, or even a snack.

Crunchy Asparagus with Shallot Vinaigrette
If you are seeking a no-carb side dish option, you will love this recipe. With spring on its way, asparagus is plentiful so why not enjoy local, fresh produce?

Are you done with Matzah Brei for breakfast? Then you should switch to Shakshuka. Hot, spiced tomato sauce, enhanced with chopped veggies and topped with fresh eggs – doesn’t that sound so much better than dry, boring Matzah?

Red Wine Braised Brisket
This one is a little more challenging, but if you feel up to it, or if you like experimenting in the kitchen, you should totally try it. Your family/roommates are going to thank you!

Hillel Ontario Welcomes University of Toronto’s Anti-Semitism Working Group

Hillel Ontario Welcomes University of Toronto’s Anti-Semitism Working Group

Hillel Ontario welcomes University of Toronto’s recent launch of a new Anti-Semitism Working Group. The Working Group will review programming, activities, processes, and practices in place at the University of Toronto’s three campuses and develop recommendations to support the University’s response to antisemitism.

“The establishment of a working group focused on antisemitism is a much-needed measure for the University of Toronto,” said Rob Nagus, Senior Director, Hillel UofT. “Too often, Jewish students who have faced antisemitism on campus have felt that their serious concerns around anti-Jewish hate were dismissed. Given the positive impact of recent anti-racism initiatives on the campus community, it is incumbent on our institutions to also address the unique challenges inherent to combating antisemitism.”

“Across the nine campuses we serve, Hillel Ontario is committed to working with all university administrations to champion the voices of Jewish students,” said Marc Newburgh, CEO, Hillel Ontario. “We look forward to supporting the work of the University of Toronto by ensuring these voices are heard and acknowledged. Doing so will help the Working Group better understand how contemporary antisemitism manifests on campus.”
