Adult Education

25 Jun @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Please join us for an Adult Ed discussion on June 25 at 2:00pm at Southington’s First Congregational Church and via Zoom.  The topic is a book discussion of The 100 Most Jewish Foods: A Highly Debatable List by Alana Newhouse.

In Judaism, food is more than just nourishment for our bodies; it’s sustenance for our souls. At the Passover seder, the different foods symbolize different aspects of our journey from slavery to freedom. At Chanukah, we eat foods fried in oil to remind us of the miracle of the oil. Food reminds us of our history, our ancestors, our heritage. The 100 Most Jewish Foods: A Highly Debatable List, by Alana Newhouse, does not merely list one hundred Jewish foods; “It’s a list of the most significant foods culturally and historically to the Jewish people, explored deeply with essays, recipes, stories, and context,”.

This event takes place from 2-4 in Memorial Hall.
