Ivrit Cooking With Shinshinim!

Sunday, December 17


Bring your family and join our Shinshinim to learn how to prepare delicious Israeli dishes using Hebrew! Last month we made lots of kinds of Israeli salads.
This month we will bake some yummy Israeli desserts! Whether you are fluent or don’t know Alef from Bet, this will be a great opportunity to pick up some Kitchen-Hebrew and have a great time cooking with some of our amazing Shinshinim (18 year old Israelis here for a year of service).

This experience is open to all, but it is geared toward elementary and middle school-aged children and their families. And it ends with dinner together, eating “the fruits” of our labor. We will also meet January 28, March 18. A donation of $5/family/session is requested - just to cover materials. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Rabbi Carter.
