Crackers, Crepes, and Cheese: Jewish Culinary Traditions From Passover to Shavuot
March 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree

On Shavuot, conversely, the most widespread gastronomic custom grows out of mysterious origins. Add in the peculiar traditions of the Mimouna holiday that comes at the end of Passover, and we have a host of culinary questions to answer. This talk addresses them all, and reveals the Jewish values at play in these festival foods.
