The Nature of Eating Jewishly

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Jewish people has a set of food traditions that spans 3,000 years—not only "keeping kosher," but also history, culture, brachot (blessings), and ethics—to say nothing of bagels and lox, chopped liver, and (newly-revived?) schmaltz. But what—if anything—can we say about the nature of eating Jewishly? Join Nigel Savage as we study a range of texts which together seek to shed fresh light on the nature of Jewish eating.
