If you enjoy cooking, want to grow your conversational Hebrew skills, or want more social time with other teens, this class is for your!  We'll play games, learn slang, and show off our mad kitchen skills.  Each week, we'll learn one simple recipe for a big family meal.  Then, we'll eat together in the fresh air.  Morah Danielle is a fun and skilled Hebrew teacher who loves teens!

This class will be conducted entirely in Hebrew.  It is open to participants with some prior exposure to the Hebrew language. Beginners are very welcome, as long as you're willing to to try and use Hebrew for the whole class - even if you rely on just a few words!  More advanced speakers will be challenged to do more.  

This class will primarily be outdoors and masked. Food prep and eating will be outside.  Participants over 12 years old are required to be vaccinated unless a clear medical reason is provided.
