The focus of Tablet’s list is not a list of good food. It’s not a list of the most popular Jewish foods, or the tastiest, or the most enduring. In fact, a number of the dishes on this list are no longer cooked or served with any regularity—at least not in the home kitchens or communal spaces where they originated—and the edibility of many others is… well, let’s say it’s up for debate. The point, instead, was to think about which foods contain the deepest Jewish significance—the ones that, through the history of our people (however you date it), have been most profoundly inspired by the rhythms of the Jewish calendar and the contingencies of the Jewish experience. That many of them are also delicious is obvious, and Darwinian: It’s how they survived as long as they did.

Each food is described by a different writer and really fun to read!

Please come prepared to discuss YOUR most meaningful Jewish food and bring 10 copies of the recipe and we’ll do a recipe swap!!!

NCJW Women’s Salon consists of monthly evening programs to discuss fiction and non-fiction books and journal articles on timely feminist and Jewish issues, take outings to theater and films, and advocate for and take action on NCJW issues.
