While the Jewish world struggles to transmit the lessons of Jewish history and the values of Jewish culture to the next generation, Culinary Kids Academy has made a remarkable discovery—teach Judaism through food. Jews and food...what could be more natural? With humor, warmth, and fun, they engage us in the story of the Jewish people—our values and ethics, our crises and heroes—while whipping up the most remarkable delicacies. CKA is magnetic—enchanting students with their wisdom, learning and recipes. You’ll be enchanted too!

In a Jewish collegiate, day/religious school and camp environment, CKA utilizes its alternative experiential teaching technique to make Judaism more relatable and personal. We turn holidays, rituals and Torah/Midrashim (that recall events that may have happened thousands of years ago) and make them relevant in modern terms. In essence, while we always look to have students walk away with more knowledge about the customs or holidays themselves, the greater end game is that they acquire Jewish life skills; for instance, learning to cook while gaining a deeper understanding about cultural and religious celebrations. We do this not only for the sake of commemoration, but because these events have the power to actively make our students better human beings to their families, friends, and society as a whole!
