Hummus and Israeli Salad from SKA JUMP NCSY Program

This past week gave a cooking demonstration at SKA High School For Girls for the NCSY JUMP program. The program was to teach the high school girls in the community how to be advocates for Israel.
Besides my cooking class, there was a dance troop from Israel, and a speaker from One Israel Fund.
