Oreo Chocolate Cheesecake

Food is an integral part of Judaism both culturally and religiously - and it's an integral part of Camp Coleman! Over the summer, our campers made several requests for the recipes from the Jewish Cooking class so that they could take a piece of camp home with them. Please share any ways that you've thought of to make the recipes your own too! B'teavon (bon appetit)!
