New: Monthly Cooking Webinars with the Havurah!!
Our blintz making webinar with Aaron Hendon was such a smashing success, we have decided to offer monthly cooking webinars going forward. It is a wonderful way for Gastronomic Jews (a term I learned at the Limmud conference last fall!!) to connect to our rich culture, a way for us all to be together doing something in this strange Pandemic era and a way for the Havurah to do some much needed fundraising for our painting/window replacement project planned for this summer. We were also happy to contribute 10% to the Vashon Covid Relief Fund.
Tickets are by donation; we are suggesting an $18 donation per household (have fun cooking with the whole family!). This is a tax-deductable donation! Give what you can; if you are able, consider giving a bit more to support those who are less able to contribute. In these times of uncertain finances for so many families, the Havurah has decided to hold off on our annual membership drive. Please consider contributing in this fun way!
We will also be recording each webinar, so if you are not able to attend at the appointed time, you can still purchase a ticket and watch later. We had a lot of people do that for the blintz-making webinar, and heard back that it worked very well. After the webinar is over, we will continue selling the recordings. These will be available on the website soon; meanwhile, you can just go to the Havurah website and make a donation, when it asks you the purpose of your donation, pick "other" and then enter which webinar you are buying and we will send you the link!
To motivate you even more, if you attend four webinars at the full $18, the fifth one will be on us! Just email me at email@example.com and let me know you'd like your complimentary 5th webinar.
Some ideas are being floated of putting together a Vashon Havurah cookbook with all the recipes we make in the webinars. Stay posted for that!
Looking forward to cooking with you all soon!
