Bubbie's Kitchen on the Go

Monday, August 08, 2016

While technically they never leave the grounds, the campers taking the Bubbie’s Kitchen activity at Camp Twelve Trails are transported across the globe as they discover new foods and cultures. Over the weeks they’ve jetted off to Israel to mix up Israeli salad (students took home the ingredients and recipe so they could make this with their families at home!), visited Morocco to taste cumin scented carrot salad with golden raisins (recipe at the end of this article), and explored Russia as they made apple and beet slaw -- you may be surprised to learn that Twelve Trails campers don’t have an aversion to beets, they loved the slaw!

Reflections from a Social Work Intern

Friday, May 13, 2016

As part of the UJA fellowship that pays a portion of my tuition for the Graduate school of Social Work at Touro College, I was required to attend monthly learning seminars at the UJA headquarters. At those morning workshops I would often overhear my peers in the UJA fellowship complain about their respective field placement sites. Grievances ranged from a supervisor suddenly leaving, to not having anything to do all day, to being forced to work with uncooperative clients. Over a cup of coffee and a hardboiled egg that’s included in the UJA’s breakfast, I would think to myself how lucky I was to have been granted a placement at the Y. Even if I fished around deep enough, I couldn’t find one honest complaint to compare.

Reflecting at Passover

Thursday, April 14, 2016

Each year at Passover we celebrate the Jewish people’s deliverance from slavery and captivity in Egypt. At our Seders we retell the story of the Exodus and remember the Jewish people’s suffering. Dipping bitter herbs into salt water symbolizing tears, reminds us of the slaves’ pain; charoset signifies the mortar they used when they were forced to build the pyramids; and eating matzo connects us to their hasty departure once they were freed. These traditions allow us to acknowledge the suffering the Israelites endured, which in turn enables us to more fully celebrate their liberation.
