Italian Kiddush Lunch


 Italian Jewish Food!

Did you know that the Italian Jewish community is one of the oldest Jewish Diaspora communities in the world?  Or that there are sub-Saharan African communities that trace their lineage back to exiles from the destruction of the first Temple?  Join us for Kiddush lunch this year as we continue our exploration of Jewish foods from around the world.  Our first Kiddush lunch on Saturday, August 26, will feature Italian Jewish cuisine.
