My Jewish Food History Lecture Tour Schedule

So I am heading to the States in a week, and will be delivering lectures on Jewish Food History, spread out over the next month. I would love to see many of you, either at lectures, or just to meet up in person.

Below you will find my speaking schedule. A few with different titles are actually the same talk, but you’ll understand which from the topic. There is still plenty of empty space, between my arrival on October 12 and my return to Israel on November 15. So although it is getting more last minute, I am definitely still open to lining up other gigs, anywhere in the country. I also have a few more in the works, that seem fairly likely, so I will definitely update this post whenever anything changes. Check back regularly, if you’re interested!

Finally, some of the gigs are open to the general public, while others are more for a specific community only. If they are talks to which you are welcome, I am including as much information as I have, including links if there is online registration. If not, I am only listing the core details so you’ll know where I am (if you want to meet up and I’m in your area).
