Teach a Teen to Cook and Save a Takeout Pizza Carton

Teen cuisine and a carnival are great distractions, while sing-alongs and a peanut butter and jazz jam are equally delectable.

While it's not quite so righteous as teaching a hungry man to fish, teaching a teenager to cook might at least save money on takeout pizza, fast-food burgers and fries.

And if you're Jewish and your kids like costumes and parties, look no further than the Purim carnival at University Synagogue.

We have a great lineup for you and your family this week:
