How Kosher Is Kosher?

What does it mean to keep kosher today--and what should it mean?

This half-day symposium will bring together noted journalist Sue Fishkoff, author of the bestselling book Kosher Nation, and influential Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz, founder and president of Uri L'Tzedek, an Orthodox social justice organization. 

They will explore the ethics, abuses, and challenges of producing, selling, and consuming kosher food. 

Kosher lunch is provided.  The program is free and open to the public but registration is required.  To register and for more informaiton, visit whatisyourfoodworth.com.
