Upcoming Events

Taste The High Holidays: Honey Cake Pops with Baked By Yael
Aug 30 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Have your cake and eat it, too, at a virtual Baked by Yael Rosh Hashanah cakepop class!

Classes last approximately one hour. We’ll teach you how to crumble the cake, mix it with frosting, and then roll, dip, and decorate your cakepops. You’ll get to take home everything you make, and we’ll clean up!

The exact number of cakepops will vary depending on what size you choose to make your cakeballs.  Some people end up with 12+ cakepops!

Registration fee includes materials for one participant:  baked cake, frosting, candy melts, cakepop sticks, and cakepop drying stand.

Baked by Yael will donate 20% of each registration fee to the EDCJCC!

During checkout, you’ll be asked to select whether you’d like to pick up your class supplies at Baked by Yael (we offer curbside pickup) or have them delivered to your home.

A student in Tyler Herman’s An Actor’s Approach to Torah said: “I’ve studied and taught many of these texts, but this this class made these ancient texts come alive in a brand-new way!” Now, Herman brings his expertise and charismatic teaching style to the high holy days, and you can be sure he’ll go whole chag! Join this master teacher and acclaimed actor/director as we prepare for Rosh Hashannah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah. Take your experience of these holidays to a new level as we learn to warm up our bodies, our voices, our imaginations, and our souls. Be prepared for some easy improvisation activities, some vocal and physical exercises, and loads of imagination gymnastics in this fun and informative course. No matter what your background or experience is, you’ll leave knowing more about acting techniques such as The Method, Meisner, and Grotowski, while deepening your emotional and spiritual connection to the Days of Awe. No acting training is necessary.
