Culinary Traditions of the Lower East Side with Jonathan Goldstein

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 15 Tammuz 5780

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMZoom

What we consider American-Jewish food comes from a mix of origins: some are traditions from the old country, some cultural fusions from the American melting pot. For example, did you know pastrami is a Romanian spice mix that was sold in US delis, which were once German until Jews bought them up? Many of these culinary traditions originated and live on in the Lower East Side. We'll visit the iconic food stops of the neighborhood and explore the origins and influences of the great Jewish American dinner table.

About Jonathan Goldstein  After a stint in finance in NYC, Jonathan made Aliya in 2006 and got his hands in the dirt, earning an MA in Land of Israel Studies and Archeology at Bar Ilan University as well as the Ministry of Tourism's Guiding Certification. Since then, he has been creating Jewish heritage travel experiences around the world focused on exploring questions of identity and our place in this complex world we live in. His primary areas of expertise include Israel, Central Europe, New York City, and the last 4,000 years of Jewish history.
