Cooking For A Cause: Getting Ready for Rosh Hashanah

On Wednesday night, September 17th students had the opportunity to cook for less fortunate families in a Yeshivah of Flatbush program known as "Cooking for a Cause." Each week the students cook something different and the food is donated to a Chesed organization. For the first event of the school year students made food specially for Rosh Hashanah. Students made Swiss chard with chickpeas, leek edgeh, blackeye peas, sweet gourd, sweet tongue bolognese and even Tzimmes. Thank you to master chefs, Ami Sasson, Rochelle Dweck, and Esther Mishan for leading the event and the Fishel family for sponsoring the event. Special thanks to Mrs. Shifra Hanon for coordinating. All participants had an amazing fun Chesed experience!!
Cooking for a Cause allows students to learn how to prepare a variety of entrees, dinners, and desserts while participating in a Chesed event. All of the food prepared in these events are sent to needy families who can then enjoy delicious homemade dinners.
