To kick off the Jewish Arts Collaborative (JArts) “Taste of Israel Restaurant Week,” join Forverts Editor Rukhl Schaechter as she makes a classic Israeli dessert: tea biscuit cake, or ugat biskvitim (עוגת ביסקויטים) as it’s known in Hebrew. It’s easy to make and you don’t even need an oven!

The baking session will be followed by a Q&A with Rukhl and Forward National & Food Editor, Rob Eshman where the two will discuss the cake’s history and relevance. Both the demonstration and the Q&A will be in English.

This talk is part of the Dr. Thomas Zand Forward Event Series. It will be recorded and sent to registrants.
