Recipes in Memory

“So that their flavour is not forgotten”

In the continuing shadow of 7th October and its aftermath, the United Synagogue have partnered with Matkon im Zikaron to launch a recipe in memory project. Each translated recipe is shared by the families of fallen soldiers and victims of terror, either a favourite or their signature dish.

We would love for you to replicate one of the recipes on this page and to read a little bit about the person who loved it to ensure that their flavour is not forgotten. You can add it to your Shabbat meal or during the week.

The strapline in Hebrew, K’she ha’taam shelahem lo yishcachu – ‘so that their flavour is not forgotten’ – has a double meaning. This refers to their favourite foods, but the Hebrew word ta’am can also mean ‘essence’. The personal stories on each recipe card enable us to remember more than just their names; we remember who they were and how they lived.

The full recipe booklet can be viewed and downloaded on this page, or keep scrolling to download individual recipe cards. Limited printed cards are also available upon request – please contact education@theus.org.uk for more info.

We encourage those who want to make a recipe to post a photo on social media (tagging the United Synagogue and Matkon im Zikaron) with the hashtag #RecipesInMemory so that the bereaved families can feel the support.
