Make Pakoras for Chanukah with Chef Raj Abassi

Jewish Indian chef Raj Abassi teaches us how to make pakoras for Chanukah! Pakoras are fried snacks, from India, typically made with different vegetables like eggplant, potato and spinach. It’s not a potato latke, but it’s all about the oil.

Jewish paper cutting tutorial – make a hamsa

Carve out lovely designs in paper with an exacto knife in this DIY Jewish paper cutting tutorial! We’ll make a hamsa – a popular symbol found throughout the Middle East and northern Africa – together with Berkeley artist Claire Sherman as she demonstrates carving.

DIY Jewish Slime video

Jewish Slime? WHY NOT?! Let’s make the best internet meme ever kosher! Join us for a ridiculous, yet informatively satisfying, tutorial on how to make your own kiddush slime. Note: do not actually consume kiddush slime.
Plus, check out Parshat Metzorah for real Torah slime! (Well, close, anyway!)
