Ingredients for the soup:
2 quarts homemade chicken soup
2 T chopped celery leaves
1 T finely chopped fresh dill

Preparing the matzo balls:
Stir together all ingredients until well blended and chill, covered at least 1 hour.
Bring an 8-quart pot of salted water to a simmer. With wet hands, roll matzo mixture into 8 balls and simmer, covered, until cooked through, about 35 minutes -- The matzo balls expand.

Meanwhile, heat the chicken soup until simmering in a wide 5-quart pot and transfer matzo balls with a slotted spoon to soup. Gently simmer with celery leaves and dill for 5 to 10 minutes, then serve.
