On Tuesday, May 13th, Circle of Hope is hosting its third monthly“Cooking for Hope” series of classes where teens will learn to cook various Jewish foods, and then bring their creations to people in need.  

During each session, teens will have the opportunity to learn to cook a variety of Kosher dishes, from soups to kugels to rugelach, all the while bringing hope and happiness to those coping with illness. Merrick resident Sheri Fisch will lead the cooking instruction and demonstration each month.  At the first and second sessions, teens learned how to make savory and sweet dishes such as gefilte fish, hamantashen, chicken cutlets and meatballs before dropping off the food to families in need.

Circle of Hope, a project of the Chabad Center for Jewish Life, is a non-profit organization that provides awareness, emotional support and hands-on help to individuals and their families coping with breast cancer and other illnesses.

Circle of Hope offers services such as support groups for those who are ill to discuss their shared experiences, as well as educational health seminars for the community. It also provides kosher meals, helps those who cannot afford their course of treatment and provides summer camp scholarships for the children of patients. It is also home to a wig bank where those losing their hair can choose a wig to wear during the course of their treatment.    Circle of Hope unites the community, bringing hope and encouragement to those who need it most, allowing them to overcome the challenges they face with confidence.
