This rocket ship recipe is very much like Morah Caryn's Cooking Class recipe for Shabbat candles.  Place a ring slice of pineapple on a saucer. Cut a banana in half cross wise. Put the standing banana in the center of the pineapple ring. Put a cherry on the point of the banana.  Put 2 or 3 apple slice on the base on side of the banana and press into the banana. 3-2-1 blastoff!  B'tay-avon

Mitzvah -this letter came from Morah Meg who shared it with us
Hello friends. I'm a local OBGYN who works at

In an effort to provide emotional support to the healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID 19'pandemic, The Wellness Committee along with Team Lavender at Stony Brook University Hospital are asking teachers and parents to have their students and children make handmade cards/letters/video messages supporting and appreciating the healthcare workers who are working selflessly to care for those affected. Please be sure to let the students and parents know that these pictures or video messages will be shared.

The theme is "Not all superheroes wear capes"

The pictures of cards/messages or video messages from students can be sent to the below email account:
