The event is live at 7:00 pm ET/ 6:00 pm CT/ 5:00 pm MT/ 4:00 pm PT. We are excited that this event will have encore presentations at 8:00 pm CT, 8:00 pm MT, and 8:00 pm PT.

Evolve Hadassah: The Next Generation presents an all-new series that explores the diversity of Jewish people and practices across the world -- and the medium that unites us: our love of food. The series kicks off with guest speaker Einat Admomy, celebrity chef known for multiple Food Network appearances and as the chef and owner of Balaboosta, New York's fine-dining Middle Eastern restaurant; Kish-Kash, New York’s first couscous bar; and the beloved falafel chain, Taim. She is also the author of two cookbooks: Balaboosta and Shuk.

Einat will share her personal story, her journey from a cook in the Israeli army to gourmet New York City chef, and how she draws inspiration from her family's Persian and Yemini roots. “Cooking is a way to express my love and compassion for those around me,” she says. “It is also a way to connect the past with the present and future. The flavors, the smells, the sounds, they flood me with memories and bring me instantly back to my childhood. And make me feel whole.”

Please note that all donations made through the event will benefit Youth Aliyah and Young Judaea. If you selected a donation level that includes Einat Admony's cookbook, you will receive it within 60 days after the event.
