Cap off counting of the Omer by joining us for Shavuot Ice Cream Study led by Howard Shatz: “Out of the Desert: The origins and future of the Islamic State (and what it means for Israel)”, Tuesday, May 30, 8:30pm (at the home of Rabbi Bass).
Today is 13 days, which is 1 week and 6 days of the Omer

Instructions for counting the omer are found on our Omer Overview Page. You can find the specific blessing for today at

And here’s today’s recipe, contributed by Leslee F..

Savory Latke Waffles


  • 3 large russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 2 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 – 6 tbsp matzo meal (or, if you need it gluten free, tapioca starch)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • Grate potatoes and zucchini.
  • Transfer to a colander lined with a clean dishtowel (cheesecloth also works) and gather the edges of the towel over the veggies.
  • Squeeze as much water as you can from the veggies–if you think you’re done, squeeze at least twice more.
  • Transfer the veggies to a big bowl, mix in the sliced onion, eggs, matzo meal, and seasonings. (I like to add a little garlic powder, b/c I love garlic.)
  • Spray the waffle iron generously with nonstick cooking spray, spoon batter into waffle iron–basically enough that that it fits in the grooves and lies flat when evenly spread–and cook for about 12 – 15 minutes until browned and crisp.
  • You can keep them heated on 200 degrees in the oven or serve them immediately.
  • They also keep well refrigerated.
