Last week I shared a recipe for stuffed acorn squash, and this week I’m back with another way to enjoy one of fall’s greatest contributions to the dinner table – squash – with butternut squash soup.
When I was a kid, I was pretty much convinced that there was only one soup in existence: chicken soup. Thankfully today I’ve broadened my horizons a little, and developed a strong appreciation for sitting down to a steaming bowl of soup after a cold day. Especially one as easy and flavorful as this.
Last month, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington sponsored a trip to South Sudan as part of its genocide prevention efforts. The purpose of this trip was to see firsthand the dangers facing Sudanese civilians as southerners prepare to vote on a referendum that could give the South independence from the North.
The Museum is committed to raising awareness internationally about ongoing conflict and the potential for new violence in Sudan to help ensure the Sudanese people can experience a peaceful and secure future.
John Ging is no stranger to conflict. As director of the Gaza-based United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) since 2006, the former officer in the Irish army has drawn frequent criticism from Israel and its advocates, and has also been the target of assassination attempts by Islamic militants.
On Shemini Atzeret last month, traditional Jews recited Tefilat Geshem, the prayer for rain, asking heaven to send clouds to the Holy Land.
Last week, some Jews — and other monotheists — prayed for rain again.
In the midst of a dry autumn that threatens to stretch into a dry winter, a group of rabbis, imams and member of the Christian clergy gathered in Walajeh, a small Arab village between Jerusalem and Bethlehem, to communally pray for rain.
