By popular demand, our program recipe has been changed from Cheese Cake to Rabbi Berk’s famous Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe!  You don’t want to miss out on this delicious demonstration!

Join us for another wonderful evening of Cooking with Caring Community! Our Host is Rabbi Emeritus Michael Berk and we will be making Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies. This program offers an opportunity for community members to virtually prepare a dish together both for themselves, and to donate to our Caring Community Fill the Freezer program.
