From the Hostages and Missing Families Forum:

As Shavuot approaches, we have launched the “Shavuot of Longing” project, which connects us through the heart and stomach to our dear brothers and sisters.

The book contains 75 recipes spread across 180 pages, including their most beloved dishes.

From the pastry they start their mornings with, to the warming winter soup, to the dessert that sweetens their hearts.

This upcoming Shavuot holiday, we invite you to prepare a recipe from the book, place it on your holiday table, and continue to raise awareness for the 125 brothers and sisters who must return home to celebrate this holiday with us.
