Join us for our annual South Shore Women’s Day and enjoy a taste of Israel. We’ll visit the famed Mahane Yehuda Shuk, Jerusalem’s biggest and oldest market, and discover more about Israel’s history through The Jewish Agency for Israel, one of UJA’s primary partners in Israel.
Following our tour, renowned chef Shawna Goodman-Sone will guide us in a cooking workshop featuring some light and classic Israeli fare.*
*Recipes and the shopping list will be sent in advance of the class. You can cook along with us, or just enjoy watching.
