Topic: Cholent, Follow-Up

In "Ask the Rabbi" #70 we suggested that the word "Cholent" comes from the French "Chaud-Lent" meaning "Hot-Slow." R. Naftali Falk from England shared with us another interpretation: The word Cholent comes from the Hebrew "Sh'lahn," meaning "That it stayed over-night." This refers to the fact that Cholent stays on the fire overnight. Thanks R. Naftali!!
