Our cuisine talks about history, migrations, expulsions of our people, and the different cultures of the places where we have lived and still live.
Our cuisine talks about our values through the symbolism and the tradition of Shabbat and the rest of the Festivals, about all kinds of kashrut, and about our customs and identity. Because our table is a reflection of our identity, of our history and values, and a projection of where we are and where we want to be.
In our Jewish cuisine activities we share not only the cooking techniques, but also the peculiarities of our dietetic rules, and the emotional and identity aspects of the dishes that dress our tables. Bet Shalom’s Jewish cuisine aims to reflect on how what we eat is an expression of who we are. As Reform Jews, we express our sense of belonging to the Community and our ethical commitment through what we eat and what we choose not to eat, and through a selection of products respectful not only with the producers and consumers rights, but also with the animals that we consume and the environment as a whole.
