About Jason Seidenberg

Hi guys! My names Jason and I hail from the 5-towns of Nassau County on Long Island here in NY. I grew up in a conservative Jewish family with a kosher home having weekly Shabbat dinners with my immediate family and grandparents. I went to a Jewish day school from pre-k through 8th grade (Brandeis) before transferring over to public school for high school. I want to host this Shabbat dinner because the last time I had Shabbat dinner was the summer of 2013 when I went to Israel on Birthright. Its been way too long and I think this would be a great platform to gather my birthright friends among others and have a night where we catch-up and rekindle past stories while at the same time refreshing our Jewish roots. And it just so happens that my co-host David is a wizard in the kitchen. He has a very similar background as I do (best friends since 3rd grade) and he's been cooking Shabbat dinners with his mom for as long as I can remember. We would love to host and show our friends a good time, feed them a delicious meal, all while encompassing some Jewish ideals. It seems like a win-win situation for everyone involved.
