“Thank you for your absolutely delightful presentation. The turnout was excellent and the interest level in your stories very high. Everyone enjoyed your storytelling and it was especially meaningful to learn about the life of your mother.”
—Frances Mendelsohn, Los Angeles Public Library
Karen Golden performed her one woman show "Love From Jewish Kitchens" at our Jewish Women's Retreat.
Over the years we have had a variety of programs for our Saturday night entertainment but very few received the "rave reviews" that Karen did!
Her storytelling about growing up in a Jewish home, the Jewish food and rituals, the family members, and other Jewish stories, creates a picture that leaves the audience totally engaged and wanting more. The music and the age old cooking utensils bring the audience back to being in their own Grandma's or Mother's kitchen. It is so magical that you can almost smell the food cooking and see the Friday night candles burning.
I highly recommend Love From Jewish Kitchens by Karen Golden. It is not only very entertaining and funny but heartfelt as well.
