A Helping Hand
Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria have vividly shown how vulnerable we all can be to natural disasters and the importance of working together to provide critical support to those most in need in our communities. As we recover and rebuild here in the Southeast, in Texas and especially in the devastating situation in Puerto Rico, we urge everyone to do what they can to lift up their friends, neighbors and fellow Americans. The American Red Cross provides essential relief services that cross over all of these disasters and you can donate by following this link.

|Matzah Ball Recipe|
Matzah Ball Recipe with Syfo Original Seltzer
Matzah (Matzo) balls are a traditional Central and East-European Jewish dumpling. Beatrice K. of North Miami shared with us her secret to making lighter, bigger Matzah balls. She uses Syfo Original Seltzer in the recipe.
Add about 2 tablespoons of SYFO Original Seltzer to the Manischewitz Mato Meal and egg. Refrigerate the dough for a couple of hours. Also, here’s a recipe for Matzah (Matzo) ball soup:
Matzo Ball Soup
2 tablespoons oil
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup Manischewitz® Matzo Meal
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons soup stock or Syfo Original Seltzer
Mix fat and eggs together. Mix and add Manischewitz® Matzo Meal and salt. When well blended, add soup stock or water. Cover mixing bowl and place in refrigerator for at least twenty minutes. Using a two or three quart size pot, bring salted water to a brisk boil. Reduce flame and into the slightly bubbling water drop balls formed from above mixture. Cover pot and let cook 30-40 minutes. Have soup at room temperature, or warmer, and remove matzo balls from water to soup pot. When ready to serve, allow soup to simmer for about 5 minutes. Recipe makes eight balls.
