The class, taught by our Rabbinic Intern, Gretchen Johnson provides a new perspective on teaching about Judaism by sharing Jewish history through cookbooks.

Jewish Americans have been part of American history since colonial times. Jews arrived from different parts of the world. We will look at four early Jewish American cookbooks, the first of which was published in 1871. These which will teach us about the values and lifestyles of Jews in each of these waves of immigration. We will learn a little bit of Jewish American history, including some humorous incidents, and maybe sample a tasty recipe or two.

Offered at no cost, all are welcomed. The class will be offered in-person and also by Zoom.  Registration is needed at for in-person attendance or the Zoom link.

The goal of the Judaism 101 classes is to share information, not impose beliefs.
