Cooking up miracles
Joanne Caras will speak and sign cookbooks at Congregation B’nai Emunah, 1719 S. Owasso Ave., on Jan. 15.
Joanne Caras’ publishing journey began on a trip to Israel, where she was introduced to a restaurant in Jerusalem that serves meals for paying customers as well as those in need. To help fund the restaurant, she began compiling two cookbooks filled with stories and recipes from Holocaust survivors, the first of which sold out.
The second, “Miracles and Meals,” will be available at Congregation B’nai Emunah, 1719 S. Owasso Ave., on Jan. 15, when Caras is there to speak and sign cookbooks at 1 p.m. Her visit is presented by the B’nai Emunah Sisterhood organization and is free and open to the public.
Filled with “recipes your family will enjoy and stories they will never forget,” Caras’ books have been sold around the world. A highly sought-after orator who doesn’t charge for her presentations, she still contributes proceeds of her work to charities.
