This past fall, Chabad of Roslyn’s Friendship Circle recently hosted award-wining author Stephanie Sorkin, a Roslyn resident at its Cooking Circle Program. There, Sorkin taught the special needs children how to make her famous nut and egg free banana bread.
The Cooking Circle is a bi-weekly program on Wednesdays, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. where children and teens with special needs join with loving volunteers together for a fun, educational and cooking experience. The past Cooking Circle programs included pizza making, Banana bread and Challah.
This program is designed to teach children many important skills from gross motor cognitive skills to communication and language. Each child is assigned to their own one-on-one volunteer who will assisted them throughout the program.
Following are the dates of the winter Cooking Circle cycle: Tuesday, Jan.12, Israeli cuisine; Tuesday, Jan. 26, Mexican cuisine and Tuesday, Feb. 9, Italian cuisine.
