Parkland residents have an opportunity to have some fun together while cooking a traditional Jewish dessert.

After a successful event baking babkas in 2020, the Jewish Federation of Broward decided to host something similar.

Almost 300 people took part in last year’s “Babka Bake,” which happened shortly before the pandemic. This time, residents will try their hands at making a different Jewish delicacy in the very first Family Rugelach Roll. However, this year, the cooking will take place in their own homes.

“The response has been great,” said Allison O’Mara, North Broward Director. “It’s really a great way for families to do something together.”

In the virtual experience, families will connect with each other via zoom to learn the art of baking rugelach with Master Baker Iris Dahoah, known for her kosher catering in the community.

O’Mara said the event will be geared toward families and requires no prior baking experience.

The Family Rugelach Roll will take place on April 18, from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $18 per family to receive an ingredient list and a link to the zoom.
