ABOUT THE BOOKS
Deeply knowing, highly entertaining, and just a little bit irreverent, The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia is an unputdownable encyclopedia of all things Jewish and Jew-ish covers culture, religion, history, habits, language, and more. Readers will refresh their knowledge of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, the artistry of Barbra Streisand, the significance of the Oslo Accords, the meaning of words like balagan, bashert, and bageling. Learn how the Jews invented Hollywood. Even discover the secret of happiness (see “Latkes”). Includes hundreds of photos, charts, infographics, and illustrations. It’s a lot.
To paraphrase any old cliché, put any two Jews together and you’ll have three opinions. Ask them to name the most Jewish food and the list turns highly debatable. Informative, unexpected, passionate, quirky and rich with layers of tradition and history, The 100 Most Jewish Foods, includes contributors like Ruth Reichl, Joan Nathan, Zac Posen, Michael Solomonov, and Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
Presented by the Milton "Mickey" Kramer Scholar-in-Residence Fund of the Congregation Beth El Foundation's Tidewater Together Series. In partnership with the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater & the Simon Family JCC’s Lee and Bernard Jaffe Family Jewish Book Festival.
