How Jewish Food Became Jewish

April 10, 2013 12:00 PM-2:00 PM

The Gershman Y has taken two great activities, eating and learning, and combined them for a great new program: Lunch and Learn! Enjoy a delicious catered lunch and then expand your mind as some of the area’s best instructors talk about and lead discussion on fascinating topics.

With Ariella Werden

Just what is Jewish food and when did certain foods become Jewish?  Temple University scholar Ariella Werden will look at the process that took place in the Lower East side and in the Northeast United States that joined immigrant lives and food culture together.  Werden will discuss the specific origins of foods thought by Jews to be "traditional,” such as bagels and lox, kugel, pastrami, and what these foods have to say about being Jewish.
