Baking Hamentaschen for Purim
DeAnna Scott
Sunday, 12:15-2:00 p.m., March 1

Bring a bag lunch and join us as we create pastries for Purim, with or without the kids! Let us gather to create some maximum Purim deliciousness as we cut, roll, and fill hamantaschen. Perfect “Haman’s pockets” are not guaranteed, but a good time getting ridiculously bathed in flour and jelly are – so bring your apron! Once those delectable, triangular filled cookies come out of the oven, be prepared to taste test your hard work or bring a few home if you care to share!

Materials fee of $5. Reserve your place in the class by February 27; email Deborah Pollack

PROGRAM NOTE: We’ve selected a new book for discussion on May 16, 2020, Saturday, 12:30-2:00 p.m. Adam Kaiserman will lead the discussion on We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast a new non-fiction offering by Jonathan Safran Foer.

Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way.  Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming because of human activity. But do those of us who accept the reality of human-caused climate change truly believe it? If we did, surely we would be roused to act on what we know. Will future generations distinguish between those who didn’t believe in the science of global warming and those who said they accepted the science but failed to change their lives in response?

AND ONE MORE THING: In conjunction with Prof. Wilcox’s folk singers course, Deborah Recommends:
