Temple B’nai Abraham is excited to partner with Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ to offer our congregants the opportunity to join a special Hanukkah Cooking Demo with award-winning chef Michael Solomonov of Zahav restaurant in Philadelphia on Wednesday, December 2, at 7:45 PM, via Zoom.
We will briefly gather on Zoom with other participating Greater MetroWest synagogues before joining the main event with Chef Solomonov.
The following dishes will be demonstrated by Chef Solomonov: Apple Shrub, Abe Fisher’s Potato Latkes, Roman Artichokes with Arugula and Olive Oil, Poached Salmon and Sfenj (Moroccan donuts) with Cinnamon and Sugar. Recipes will be provided in advance to all registrants.
Chef and restauranteur Michael Solomonov won the James Beard Foundation awards for Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic in 2011, Cookbook of the Year in 2016, and Outstanding Chef in 2017.
This event is free to our congregants and there will be no solicitation of funds from Federation. To register, visit www.jfedgmw.org/cooking-demo.
Dear Fellow community member,
We would like to share the following initiative with you and hope that you will include it in your communications to your respective congregations:
In an effort to assist individuals who are in need of job search support during this economic downturn, the Livingston and West Orange communities have revived the Jewish Job Network (JJN). JJN is an informal volunteer organization serving the Jewish community in our local area. The support includes guidance in resume writing, interviewing, career counseling, networking (including LinkedIn), starting a new business, learning how to consult and job retraining.
If you are in need of assistance or if you are interested in volunteering, please go to JJN’s website http://jewishjobnetwork.com.
The volunteers we seek are people with knowledge/experience in the above areas, including those with contacts in their respective fields who will be able to connect job seekers for industry or position specific advice and potential job placement. We look forward to working with you.
If you have any questions on the above, please reach out to Fernand Schoppig – firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope we can help those in need.
