Chabad's CTeen Group 'Bakes a Difference' for Thanksgiving

High School teens from across the County poured, measured, mixed and laughed as they prepared food for the needy for Thanksgiving. The teens used the spacious commercial kitchen in the new Chabad of Orange County Center for Life facility. The talents and the efforts of the teens resulted in a number of beautifully decorated pumpkin pies, as well as many loaves of beer bread. “The CTeen leaders enthusiastically planned the event,” said Chana Burston, who together with her husband Rabbi Pesach, leads CTeen. “There is no better feeling for teens than giving,” she adds. CTeen leaders are Ava Maeir of Monroe, Ariel Koyfman of Chester, Amir Mosker of Monroe, Lola Sale of Highland Mills and Haley Olstein of Monroe. Following the baking, Chana Burston led a meaningful discussion about the Jewish perspective of gratitude. Hot appetizers and a colorful “gratitude veggie display’ were enjoyed by all. Teens participated in meaningful and exciting “gratitude games” and were gifted with gratitude magnets. The event was dedicated to the memory of local teen Adi Wolf of Monroe, who was a part of the CTeen group, who enjoyed giving to others.
