Passover cooking and Matzah Ball drop at COS


Congregation Ohev Shalom invites the community to participate in two enjoyable events that mark the weeklong celebration of Passover. Around the Jewish table cooking on Sunday, April 2, at 12:30 p.m. and the Matzah Brei Brunch and Matzah Ball drop on April 16 at 10 a.m.

Anyone who has to cook for the holiday knows that looking for new recipes is an ongoing endeavor. On April 2nd come and cook with Ellen Zollman and together you will make Tzimmes, a different Charoset and dessert beyond macaroons! The program reaches all ages from adults to parents who want to cook with their children. The event begins at 12:30 p.m. at Congregation Ohev Shalom. The cost is $10 per family and registration can be done online at http://www.ohevshalom.org/event/around-the-jewish-family-table-cooking.html

On Sunday, April 16, bring the entire family for a unique event, The Matzah Brei Brunch and Matzah Ball drop. This event will take place at 10 a.m. at Bob White Field in Mt. Dora. In addition to brunch, kosher for Passover of course, there will be a ball drop fly over! Participants can purchase “matzah” balls. They will be taken up in a vintage plane flown and owned by Craig Pearlman and dropped over a target on the ground. The ball closest to the target wins. The more balls purchased the better the chance of winning! In addition to the brunch and ball drop, plane rides in a vintage plane are available! Proceeds will benefit the youth, education and family programs and scholarships of Congregation Ohev Shalom If you can’t make the event but want to purchase a “matzah” ball, you don’t have to be present to win.

Brunch is $6 grade 12 and younger and senior adults; and $8 adults. The cost of the “matzah” balls are $10 each or 6 for $50. Plane rides are $20 per person. Register online at http://www.ohevshalom.org/event/matzah-ball-drop-and-matzah-brei-brunch.html
