Hakafa's Home Cooking: Artists & Residents

After months of confinement at home during the beginning months of the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt that Hakafa members and their families might need some uplifting diversions. We thought that almost everyone would welcome some inspiring, stimulating online entertainment, so we wouldn't feel as isolated or lonely. We agreed that we certainly have enough resources and talent in our community to attract a multi-generational cross-section of Hakafa congregants.

Please enjoy Hakafa's online program from 2020,
"Hakafa's Home Cooking: Artists & Residents."

Each episode is comprised of a remarkable demonstration of the culinary skill, resourcefulness, and charm of a gifted Hakafa member, as well as a delicious creation that our users/viewers can attempt to replicate in real time on their own. In addition, each episode includes artists -- musicians, painters, performers, sculptors, photographers and poets willing to create and share a brief video of their work.
