A JDC Passover Meal from Jewish Kitchens Around the World

New York, March 3, 2010―You can heat up that matzah-ball soup and whip-up grandpa’s famous firehouse horseradish, but make room for new Passover tastes from India, Estonia, and Israel. The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the world’s largest Jewish humanitarian assistance organization, sponsors hundreds of Passover seders around the world as part of its community building and welfare programs, and these recipes were chosen to represent some of more than the seventy countries JDC works in.

With remarkable regional flare, you’ll be bowled over by our spicy Moroccan fish appetizer, crave the delicious matzah stuffing with walnuts for your roast turkey, and satisfy your sweet tooth with sweet potato balls rolled in mixed nuts. As we all know, Jewish food recipes can play fast and loose with ingredient amounts and cooking time, so be prepared to be adventurous for this year’s festive meal. Dayenu!
