At-Home Receptions Announced

Miriam Field

Sa the infancy of dvilization," said
English essayist Lord Macaulay, "when
our island was as savage as New Guinea,
when letters and arts were still unknown
to Athens, when scarcely a thatched but
stood at what was afterwards the site of
Rome, this contemned people had their
fenced cities and cedar palaces, their
splendid Temple, their fleets of mer-
dant ships, their schools of sacred learn-
ing, tack great statesmen and scholars,
their an n eal philosophers, their his-
torians * their poets . "
It was not until 1876 that education was
made compulsory in England (under
Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, in-
cidentally). Today, in the United States,
some two million people are illiterate.
Yet, 21 centuries ago in Palestine, illit-
eracy was virtually legislated out of
existence under a comprehensive system
of universal education instituted by
scholar Simeon ben Shetah, brother of
the Hasmonean Queen Salome Alexan-
dra. For the People of the Book the
Bible became a "portable homeland"
and through exile and odyssey and un-
told oppression this passion for educa-
tion persisted and prevailed.
gr-earning, learning, learning—that L
the secret of Jewish survival," declared
philosoAer Ahad Ha-Am. "The pursuit
of knowledge for its own sake, an almost
fanatical love for justice and the desire
for personal independence—these are
the features of Jewish tradition," re-
marked Albert Einstein, "that make me
thank my stars that I belong to it."
Mystical, marvelous, beyond under-
standing really, is Israel's longstanding
love affair with the Torah. And Shavuos
is the anniversary of that distant day at
Sinai when it all began. The Mosaic
Code (Torah, of course, means Law as
well as Teaching) set up the framework
ofa democratic, to a high degree utopian
society long before the Greek city-states
knew the meaning of democracy. It
ranks morality and social justice with
religious precepts. It entails a daily
discipline on many levels. Yet Judaism
insists on regarding it as a priceless
gift, given and received with love. That
is why devout men spend the entire
Shavuos night in prayer and study. For
the Torah is likened to a bride and the
House of Israel to a bridegroom. With
ardor and with joy, the groom prepares
for the wedding .. .


Nd what does mother prepare for
Shavuos? Dairy delicacies of many
kinds. So here are two new ideas:
3/4 cup unsifted flour • 11/2 tsps. sugar

1/2 tsp. baking soda • 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup pot cheese • I cup shredded apple
1/2 cup dairy sour cream • 2 eggs
Planters Oil • Confectioners' sugar

Thoroughly combine flour, sugar, baking
soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside. Mix
together pot cheese, apple and sour cream.
Beat eggs until thick and lemon colored;
fold into cheese mixture, then fold in dry
ingredients. Heat about 1/4 to 1/4-inch depth
of Planters Oil in large heavy skillet. For
each fritter, drop about 2 level tablespoon-
fuls of cheese mixture into hot oil. Fry on
each side until solder .brown. Add Planters
Oil to skillet as needed to keep proper
depth for frying. Drain fritters on paper
towels. Serve bot'sprinkled with confec-
tioners' sugar. Makes about 18 fritters.

2 cups unsifted flour • 1/2 cup sugar
3 taps. baking powder • 1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten • 3/4 cup milk
3 ,41 cup (1 large) ripe mashed. banana

3 tablespoons Planters Oil

-dry ingredients. Stir just enough to moisten
mixture. Batter will be lumpy. Fill greased
minim cups about half full. Sprinkle each
muffin with about % teaspoon iinelycbopped
Planters Pecans. Bake at 425° F. 15 to 20
Wanes. Serve warm. Makes a dozen.
