I am Yaeli- a 51 year old kosher chef and Chabadnik with 7 children and 3 sons and 2 daughters in law and 7 grandchildren K"H.

My specialties are Middle-Eastern Sephardic foods and vegetarian/vegan cooking. I work with food all day. I tend to be an emotional eater and it seems that when I am upset I sooth myself with food.

At work there is a 2 acre organic farm attached to the sweetest hotel ever. It is designed like in a Mission/Frank Lloyd Wright style with a fireplace, bamboo on the walls and very "green". We teach sustainable living and I occassionally teach organic cooking. You can see it @ www. pearlstonecenter.org.

I am a Chabad/Lubavitcher Jew and we have a Chabad house which means that my home is open 24/7 to all Jews- for a mean, a d'var Torah, Tanya, help in a crisis or just an ear. Meals of course....

I'm in this for the long haul and I could use some company.

Personal Information:
I'm based in Baltimore although I have lived in rural MA, NYC, SF, MD/DC'burbs, Long Island and back to MD.

I am remarried to the love of my life- we have 7 kids and we are on a perpetual honeymoon. He is my best friend.

I had been a Sephardic Rebbitzen in a congregational setting for 24 years and now I am a Lubavitcher Hassidah or a Chabadnik. I am deeply into hospitality and we have a Chabad House in the truest sense- my home is open to all. We are dedicated to the spread of Chassidut as a means to bring the Redemption.

I have kids all over the world - some teachers, some Rabbis in training and a solder boy. We also have three beautiful grandchildren.

I've been described as bubbly and energetic - you either love it or hate it. I am friendly and I strive to always greet everyone with a cheerful countenance.

Other Information:
I am a bundle of contradictions- I love Chassidic thought and Jewish philosophy, but I also love Jane Austen and an occasional chick flick.

I love to cook but hate to clean. I do it anyway.....

I am active all day at work- I'm a chef- but I seem to have two speeds- either flat out or flat on my back. Moderations isn't in my personality.

    Hi! I saw your page through SAPNA and had to stop by. Once I got here I saw a kindred spirit and had to add you as a friend. I also do not do moderation: it's either all out or all done. LoL! I do hope we can get to know each other and become friends.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
