Cooking dinner as a couple became a memorable date night when Emet Outreach’s Couple’s Division hosted an enticing class at Apron Masters in Woodmere. Over a three-hour period, 12 couples and some eager Emet staff learned to prepare a three-course meal. “It was our first time offering such an exciting event for couples,” said Shay Yonaiev, Couples Director. “We love providing interactive workshops with useful tips, but cooking gourmet food together took it to another level. The staff at Apron Masters made it easy for us to follow along and feel accomplished.”

There is no vacation from Torah study for the motivated girls in Emet’s Women’s Division. In fact, this summer the learning just got more creative. Emet recently debuted the first in a four-part series on “Positive Thinking.” Held in a beautiful backyard in Forest Hills, the series kicked off with an engaging and inspirational shiur by Rabbi Shalom Yona Weis. “Emet started this series because the students were asking to have consistent weekly learning during the summer,” said Ms. Adina Fendel, Women’s Director. “We try to provide opportunities to incorporate Torah study during the week, so this was a perfect way to make it relevant and relaxing.”
