Explore the borough’s Jewish culinary traditions with the Center for Brooklyn History


Just because it’s a virtual program doesn’t mean you can’t sample food from Brooklyn’s Jewish communities.

“Jewish Brooklyn: From Gefilte Fish to Kibbeh” is the first of a three-part series on Jewish life in Brooklyn offered by the Center for Brooklyn History over the next two months. The first program focuses on the food of Brooklyn’s Syrian and Russian Jewish communities with moderator Jeffrey Yoskowitz, author and co-owner of The Gefilteria, joining Sephardic cuisine expert Jennifer Abadi, Russian cuisine expert Boris Fishman and the food historian Jane Ziegelman. In addition to the discussion and demonstration, attendees will be able to get a glimpse of some highlights of the Center’s Jewish history collection.

The first conversation takes place via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 11. It is free but online registration is required to connect. For more information, see the online event page.
