BaMitbach: Teen Culinary Experience

ARE YOU READY TO COOK AN AMAZING SHABBAT DINNER AND MUCH MORE?

BaMitbach teaches teens the art and skills of food preparation and cooking

Develop the skills used by professional chefs

Participants will gain serious and practical culinary skills such as proper knife technique, kitchen organization, and recipe development in a setting that puts Judaism and Jewish food at the center of learning. No experience with either a knife nor frying pan or even kitchen is necessary.

Let's Prepare Delicious "Jewish" Foods 

This new, 2-week intensive program highlights culinary traditions from across the Jewish world: Ashkenazi, Mizrahi, Israeli, etc. By combining a highly professional, culinary-school-style learning environment with classic Tel Yehudah, teens will come home ready to make a delicious five course Shabbat dinner for family and friends!  

Culinary Skills Meet Life-Fulfilling Activities

As important as it is to acquire these skills, there is always room for fun, friendships, and exploration. Tel Yehudah provides a one-of-a-kind Jewish environment, where teens interact with others from Jewish communities in the U.S., Israel and around the world. The “best of camp” at TY includes the opportunity to partake in sports, arts and Israel education programs. Each week culminates in Shabbat, amidst the natural, serene setting of Tel Yehudah and is followed by a wild Israeli dance party.
