Beyond Bagels: Jewish Food and Jewish Eating
August 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Listing as per MOFAD – Museum of Food and Drink, organizer of Beyond Bagels: Jewish Food and Jewish Eating in the United States:
What does “eating Jewish” look like in the United States today? The spectrum of Jewish food laws and dietary guidelines is vast and followed to many varying degrees. Some rabbis eat lobster; some Jews eat treyf during the year, but strictly adhere to Passover. What if you’re not Jewish but like a good kosher deli? What does it mean to be culinarily versus religiously Jewish, and where do these diverge? And what exactly is Jewish food anyway?
Join moderator Jeffrey Yoskowitz of The Gefilteria and a dynamic panel made up of Niki Russ Federman (Russ & Daughters), Joel Tietolman (Mile End), Hal Simon (Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers), and cookbook author Adeena Sussman for a lively discussion on the relationship between Jewish food and Jewish eating.
An informal reception with book signings and small bites will follow.
Tickets are $30. Doors open at 6 PM. Program begins promptly at 6:30 PM. Beyond Bagels is part of the museum’s Global Cuisines, Global Cultures series.
