On February 24, 2011, the UJA-Federation of NY Russian Leadership Division hosted a Cook-Off competition at The JCC in Manhattan.

Six teams competed in the cook-off preparing recipes that all shared the secret ingredient of “garlic”.  The teams worked diligently to cook their dishes in time and present them to the judges for tasting.  The judges were impressed by all of the final dishes but in the end, there could only be one winner.  It was a wonderful evening full of fun, laughter, and great food.

A portion of the proceeds collected from the event will support the UJA-Federation of NY’s mission of “Caring for those in need, rescuing those in harm’s way, and renewing and strengthening the Jewish people in New York, in Israel, and around the world.”
