In this week’s parsha, Moshe explains the laws of justice and doing battle. One of the laws is not to destroy trees in the field. This also ties to Elul, a month where we try to grow in mitzvot. Since some trees bear fruit, let’s make a delicious fruit crisp this week.

Fresh or frozen fruits like apples, peaches, plums and cherries


Lemon juice

For the topping:

½ cup rolled oats

1 cup all-purpose flour

½ cup light brown sugar


12 tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Heat oven to 350 F.

2. Coat a 9×9 inch pan with a little of the melted butter. Toss fruits with sugar and lemon juice. Combine oats, flour, sugar and salt, stir, and then drizzle in melted butter and vanilla extract until crumbly.

3. Sprinkle over the fruit mixture, bake in the oven for 35 minutes, Let cool before serving.
