Chabad’s Jewish Women’s Circle enjoyed a special evening with celebrity chef Susie Fishbein at “Everything but the Turkey.” Fishbein is the author of nine best-selling Kosher Cookbooks.

  The virtual evening was made extra special by each participant receiving a Gourmet Tasting Box which included a variety of Fishbein’s recipes, both from the demonstration as well as others from her cookbooks. Turkey Taco Egg Rolls with dipping sauce, Chestnut-Mushroom Soup, Apple Galette Crunch, Pumpkin Muffins, specialty cookies and a “L’Chaim” iced treat were enjoyed by the more than seventy participants of the event. All were gifted with a beautiful “Modeh Ani” prayer card to emphasize the Thanksgiving theme of gratitude.

  The event was co-hosted with Chabad of Orange County, directed by Rabbi Pesach Burston and Chabad of Suffern, NY, directed by Rabbi Shmuel and Devorah Gancz.  

  “Our communities are geographically close, and we have done events together in the past” says Gancz.  “In these times which are lonely for so many, it’s wonderful to once again introduce our communities and enjoy an evening together.”

   Chabad expresses appreciation to Stacey Finkelstein of Middletown and Sharon Stern who assisted Chana and Devorah in preparing the Gourmet Tasting BoxesThe evening dedication was sponsored by Dr. Suzanne Brown Berkowitz of Warwick.
