Fun in a Cup! (of Joe)

Do you remember the storms and hurricanes you experienced or heard about as a child? Are today’s severe weather events global warming or just the cycle of seasons? Enjoy this seminar that will explore fun facts about weather and dealing with storms and other weather conditions. Each attendee will receive a small “weather the weather” gift.
Different types of apples and honey will be explored, as well as the history of how this tradition became associated with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. We’ll ask: Why the apple? Isn’t honey on the challah bread sufficient to symbolize a sweet year? What is the special symbolism of the apple that makes it the fruit that most graces our Rosh Hashanah table? Join us for this fun and interactive program.
What’s Lurking in Your Fridge?
Food safety is just as important as maintaining a proper diet and the right cooking utensils. Join Chef Mitchell Goldberg (JCHC’s Regional Dining Director) who will uncover all the “screamie meanies” that could be in your refrigerator or kitchen cabinets. We will end with a quick and tasty no-bake treat.
Covered bridges are romantic reminders of an earlier era in New Jersey. Enjoy a PowerPoint presentation by a bicyclist who has traveled through these bridges, as you are taken on your own journey through history via New Jersey’s one-time famous wooden bridges.
Canadian Inuit dogs were the mainstay of Arctic transportation for thousands of years. Because of their strength and ability to thrive in extreme conditions, these dogs were selected to power the first expeditions to reach the North Pole (Robert Peary 1909) and the South Pole (Roald Amundson 1911). This session takes the participant on a virtual dog sledding adventure as we learn about the history of these magnificent animals.
