hey shouldn’t it be spelled “choolent” (as in “foot”)?September 22, 2009 9:27 pm at 9:27 pm #671017
chOlent!!September 22, 2009 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #671018
or CHOLNT is actually preferableSeptember 22, 2009 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #671019
Beinhasdorim- welcome! I have been in the same situation myself many times.
80- CHULENT all the way!!
I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.September 22, 2009 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #671020

We haven’t had a formal poll here in a long time. I wonder if the boss (YW Editor) would run one on this topic (the correct spelling of cholent). I’m not going to approach his highness directly. (We know what happened last time someone tried that) but as we know he sees all on YW.September 22, 2009 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #671022
I offer to be the korbon:
Dear Sir Editer,
With all due respect, there has been a request put in to take a YWN poll on the official spelling of Chulent.
It is obviously spelled as stated above, but for some strange reason we are experiencing opposition from none other then an esteemed moderator!
Please squelch this uprising at the start so that we do not need to deal with any un-pleasantries later on.
Very respectfully yours,
NOT EDITED, (but it should have been)…80September 22, 2009 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #671023
What is the origin for the word chulent?
(I think I once heard it explained, but can’t think of it.)September 22, 2009 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #671024Y.W. EditorKeymaster
How about a taste-a-thon for Cholent?September 22, 2009 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #671025mybatMember
Here they say chont. I can’t stand it! Its CHULENT!!September 22, 2009 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #671026jmattMember
whoops… sorry about that. as a “lurker” i should have known to pick a different mane.
and i think it means hot. (like how “nonchalant” means cool)September 22, 2009 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #671027
I have no idea what the Editor is talking about, but notice how the final arbiter of all things on YW spelled CHOLENT.
WITH AN O !!September 22, 2009 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #671028
Wow! Mod 80, I guess you were right – Sir Editor does “see all” on YWN!
But does he know all? The origin of the word?September 22, 2009 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm #671032
[overnight]September 22, 2009 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #671033
I will only participate in the taste-o-thon of Chulent- not cholent (yik)
Mee la’Chulent aylaiy!
Luckily I passed the Moderation Restraint Course with Advanced Lab.
I am trying so hard not to edit these posts. I may need some counseling. (Or a 2 week vacation.)…80September 22, 2009 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #671034
Thank you, Areivim 🙂for spelling it cholent, you did spell it cholent because we all know the real spelling of cholent is cholent and anyone who says it is not cholent simply doesn’t know how to properly spell cholent because as we all know it is only spelled cholent and any spelling other than cholent is not the correct spelling of CHOLENT
And by the way don’t let anyone tell you that the words in blue were added by 80, because I assure you 80 would never stoop to anything so low. And I know 80 very very well. The finest moderator around these parts, I must say.September 22, 2009 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #671035
Would any discussion of this culinary delight be complete without a reference to Country Yossi’s classic song?
Everybody now! “Cholent! Cholent! Ch-ch-ch-cholent cholent…”
(I am alternating spelling for the sake of shalom.)September 23, 2009 2:57 am at 2:57 am #671036
Mod 80 – LOL!!! I’d say that 2 week vacation would probably be a good idea for you… 😉
BTW, did everyone stop posting on this thread because a female started “singing”? If so, please mochel me :p I will endeavor to restrain myself though it won’t be easy. (I really like that song)September 23, 2009 3:08 am at 3:08 am #671037
who cares how u spell cholent the important thing is that it should taste goodSeptember 23, 2009 3:12 am at 3:12 am #671038mepalMember
alternating spelling? Is someone playing tricks?
I think it depends on your affiliation. The chasiddim would call it chUlent, the litvaks, chOlent. Sfardim? You?September 23, 2009 3:44 am at 3:44 am #671039
mepal: Sephardim eat chaMIM (emphasis on the 2nd syllable)
