My name is Lindy Bornstein. I am passionate about my role as an Enrichment Specialist leading cooking activities at Temple Beth David Religious School. Many of my fondest memories growing up involve cooking traditional Jewish dishes like matzah ball soup, hamantaschen, and latkes. To this day one of my favorite things is to share my love of cooking and baking.
Staying connected to Judaism through hands-on activities like cooking can be a meaningful way to feel close to our families and appreciate our culture. I have spent 10 years working with children in the mental health field, and have seen how much they can grow from being included in cooking, getting messy hands, and eating meals together as a family.
It is wonderful to help our students (and parents!) feel accomplished and connected to Judaism as they create memories through cooking at Temple Beth David!
