Booklet on Cults

two-year local ecumenical
study into religious cults
has resulted in the publica-
tion of a 24-page teachers'
handbook designed for use
with high school age stu-

Next to the Bible, books
on food, recipes and tempta-
tions for the gourmet are
the best sellers in the book
When a food expert draws
upon family traditions the
attraction is all the greater.
Therefore, when mama's
cooking, inspired by a le-
gacy from the Bubbie, the
Grandma, is on the market,
it is all the more conducive
to interest for the housewife
and her family.
"From My Mother's
Kitchen," (Harper and
Row), subt
itled "Recipes
and Reminiscences," is
this kind of book.
It is not a kosher cook
book, but it draws upon the
kosher kitchen as a remin-
der of the most palatable.
Therefore, it earns the at-
tention accorded it.
The author of From My
Mother's Kitchen" is Mimi
Sheraton, New York Times
food and restaurant critic.
Her father was a produce
buyer, her mother an old-
fashioned natural cook
whose table was filled with
-traditional East European
Exemplary of the recipes
offered in this book are:

Honey Cake
2 cups dark honey
3 /4 cup black coffee,brewed
double strength
3 tbsps. mild vegetable oil,
preferably peanut
4 eggs
3 /4 cup sugar
31/2 cups sifted flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
1 tsp. powdered cinnamon
1 tsp. powdered ginger
Grated rind of 1 orange
Grated rind of 1 lemon
10 or 12 whole blanched al-
monds (optional)
Preheat the oven to 325 de-
grees. Butter a 91/2x51/2x3-inch
loaf pan. Cut clean brown
paper, waxed paper, or baker's
parchment to fit the bottom
and sides of the pan and butter
one side. Place the unbuttered
side of the paper against the
Put the honey in a heavy
saucepan and bring to a boil.
Set aside, let cool, then stir in
the coffee and oil. Beat the
eggs with the sugar until light
and thick so the mixture forms
a ribbon when dropped onto
itself. Stir in the coffee, honey
and oil mixture. Resift the flour
and other dry ingredients into
the batter; fold in gently with
the fruit rind.
Pour the batter into the lined

pan. If you like, make a pattern

on top with almonds. Bake for
about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours, or until
the top is golden brown and a
tester inserted in the center
comes out clean. Let the cake
cook in the pan. Do not peel of
all the paper; just peel off what
is necessary each time you
slice the cake. This cake will
develop more flavor if it is kept
uncut for 24 hours. It keeps
well in an airtight container.

Austro-Hungarian cook-
ing as well as typically
American dishes are in-
cluded in this volume.
The kashrut observer will
have no difficulty selecting
the Jewish dishes and
applying many of the others
to kashrut. That's what
makes "From My Mother's

commendable work for the
Jewish housewife.

Assembly Issues
New Ketuba

NEW YORK — The Rab-
binical Assembly recently
issued its latest version of
the Jewish marriage con-
tract, combining the
legalities and mystique of
age-old tradition with the
changing demands and sen-
sitivities of modern times.
While contemporary
American marital contracts
which establish areas of fi-
nancial and domestic re-
sponsibilities are_relatively
new, ketubot have been the
instruments of Jewish mar-
riages for thousands of
The ketuba is a religious
document, designed to pro-
tect the woman from finan-
cial distress in case of di-
vorce or husband's death,
and to allow her financial
independence, if desired,
while married. Although
once among the most ad-
vanced familial ar-
rangements in the world,
the ketuba became a frozen
formula, more important for
its presence than its con-
tents. The Rabbinical As-
sembly, Conservative
Judaism's rabbinical arm,
hopes-that this modernized
ketuba will reinvest mean-
ing in the traditional form.
