Jewish cuisine refers to the cooking traditions of the Jewish people worldwide. Jewish cooking is food with a story; rich in history and symbolism yet open to new influences and inspirations. It has evolved over many centuries, shaped by Jewish dietary laws, holidays and religious traditions. Jewish cuisine is influenced by the agriculture, culinary traditions and economics of the many countries where Jewish communities have settled. The fare varies widely throughout the world.

Please join JoEllen Duckor, a practicing rabbi in New Zealand who will be in our area on holiday, on Friday, November 15, at 11 a.m., at King Thiel Senior Community, as she shares her knowledge on Jewish cuisine and traditions of Jewish people as it relates to food. Attendees will learn the basics of keeping kosher, the meaning behind traditional holiday celebrations and more. A simple lunch will be served.
