Master Chef comes to Olam Tikvah

Olam Tikvah’s USY/Kadima chapter hosted an Israeli MasterChef, pitting parents vs. teens in a three part cooking competition. With over 50 participants it was the biggest event we've hosted in years- and we're proud to congratulate the USYers and Kadimaniks on winning!

Congregation Olam Tikvah offers programs to youths and teens from grades 3 -12. We are part of the USY Seaboard Region.  Throughout the year we offer programs for each of the youth groups.  

Machar- 3rd-5th

Kadima- 6th-8th

USY- 9th-12th 

We now have sharable calenders for each youth group! Just email me at MikeHershkovitz@gmail.com with which email address you'd like and I will share it with you. We would love to have the kids get notifications so please send me their email address- and if they have Instagram, tell them to follow us at otusy1
