On Tuesday, December 24th, Jamie Geller, an American-born Israeli food writer, celebrity chef, television producer, and businesswoman, visited our Jerusalem Restaurant-Style soup kitchen. Jamie has visited our branch once before and was truly inspired by the critical services Meir Panim provides.
Watch Jamie in our video where she demonstrates how to make Chanukah gelt. She explains how to temper chocolate, squeeze and decorate it into a coin shape. Additionally, Jamie was moved by the widespread poverty in Israel. At one point, the famed chef said “we need a lot of gelt,” coins or money, to help support Meir Panim and the 1.8 million struggling Israeli Citizens, including 800,000 children and 200,000 Holocaust Survivors.
Thank you, Jamie, for visiting our center. Show your support for Meir Panim’s programs, social relief welfare efforts and more.
