Snack ideas children can make themselves, even on Shabbat,* taken from the weekly parsha. Use as an opening to a lesson, or as an end in itself!

Leaving Gleanings for the Poor

Leviticus 19:9And when you cut the grain on your land, do not cut the corners of your fields, and do not gather that which falls.  וּבְקֻצְרְכֶם אֶת-קְצִיר אַרְצְכֶם לֹא תְכַלֶּה פְּאַת שָׂדְךָ לִקְצֹר; וְלֶקֶט קְצִירְךָ לֹא תְלַקֵּט.
19:10And not go back to gather what you missed from your vineyard, nor that which fell.  Leave them for the poor and for the non-citizen.  I am the Lord your G-d.  וְכַרְמְךָ לֹא תְעוֹלֵל וּפֶרֶט כַּרְמְךָ לֹא תְלַקֵּט:  לֶעָנִי וְלַגֵּר תַּעֲזֹב אֹתָם אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם.

Ingredients:

  • Small pretzel sticks
  • 2 raspberries
  • 1 mango (can be shared by several children)

Tools

  • Knife

To Prepare:

  1. Cut each half off of mango pit.
  2. Peal, cut in quarters or thinner lengthwise.
  3. Cut in half to make a triangle that stands up, with one end narrow enough to put a raspberry on it.

To Assemble:

  1. Place mini pretzels so that there are bits scattered at the edges, with a small pile in the center of the work surface.
  2. Stand one mango section near the pile, top with a raspberry to represent a landowner gathering grain.
  3. Stand a second section of mango near one pretzel piece near the edge, top with a raspberry to represent a pauper gathering gleanings.
