Synopsis: 17-year-old G. on Rosh Hashanah: I accept my moments of weakness and of feeling alone, and hope to see the Shanti family around me, and know and feel that I am not alone.
18-year-old A. on Yom Kippur: I forgive myself for the fact that it's still hard for me to forgive my mother, who abandoned me at the age of two, and hope to learn more about compassion from Mariuma this year.
15-year-old K. on Hanukkah: Light for me is that I'm fighting, and not giving up on life.
These quotes are taken from the sharing rounds held around every holiday table at Shanti House. Everybody shares: children, staff, guests and former residents, and together they celebrate all the Jewish holidays with the new family that they have created.
Shanti House was founded in 1984. Ever since, it has been a shelter for tens of thousands of young people who were in immediate and real danger. In late 2009, Shanti House expanded its activity, opening the Desert Shanti House Youth Village in Israel's Negev Desert. This has enabled Shanti House to introduce new therapeutic tools, and accommodate young people outside central Israel, particularly in the south. Shanti House Association was founded by Mariuma Ben Yosef. In the year 2000, Mariuma received the President's Award for Volunteerism, and was honored to light one of the torches in the official ceremony held on the eve of Independence Day.
Despite the unyielding dedication of Mariuma, who manages the Shanti House Association, together with Michael and a unique team that runs Shanti House, the organization's existence still relies mainly on donations, and this book is your chance to help.
This book includes 60 dessert recipes from Israel's leading chefs, along with moving stories from the holiday table at Shanti House. For the past 30 years, tens of thousands of children have sat around that table. By reaching out for help, these children have chosen life.
Proceeds of this book will be used to support the continued existence of Shanti House.
The English version of this book was made possible thanks to our lifelong friends Marianne and Doron Livnat.
Review: Gefen Publishing House in Jerusalem is acting as distributor for a pair of cookbooks whose revenues will be transferred to Shanti House Association (of Israel), a shelter for runaway, homeless, emotionally injured, abandoned youth ages 14 21, many of whom have been physically, sexually and emotionally abused.
The layout of the books is beautiful and with chefs creating the recipes, needless to say, they are special. The comments by youth are heart rendering at times.
Not by Sweets Alone contains 60 dessert recipes from Israeli chefs. Interspersed are stories and sharing of thoughts by youth. Enhancing the book are 115 color photographs of people or artsy scenes; 142 color photographs show food preparation or youth working with chefs.
Not by Food Alone brings the scents, voices, colors, and tastes of Shabbat meals at Shanti House. Founder Mariuma Ben Yosef explains she would summarize the week, Kiddush was made and a member of the staff Michael ben Yosef would tell a story with a moral.
Beginning in 2008, Michal Moses suggested preparing a book of recipes for Shabbat, and with Dana Livnat-Gazit they enlisted 32 chefs, food photographers, stylists and others to produce this cookbook. --Sybil Kaplan, The Jewish Post & Opinion
