Jewish Food History

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

Of the many lenses through which to gain a greater perspective on history, food is too often neglected. The story of Jewish food is the story of the Jewish people told more tastily. If you are hungry to know what manna really was or how cholent saved the Jews of Spain, prepare your palates for a culinary adventure through the space and time of Jewish experience. We will cover what Jewish foods are, where they came from, and why they are important.
