Everybody Eats: Exploring Food, Flavors and Faith
Sunday, February 9
4:00 PM at Temple Israel, 5419 E. Broad Street.
Together with members from the Noor Center, Temple Israel, and Trinity Episcopal Church, we present a series of events to learn
about food and culture in Abrahamic faiths.
Part I - Sunday, February 9, 4:00 PM at Temple Israel, 5419 E. Broad Street. - We will kick off the series with a lecture, "Food, Family and Faith: From Soup to Nuts in the Abrahamic Traditions." by Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, professor, Department of Anthropology at the Ohio State University. Dr. Cohen's research focuses on three areas: migration, development and nutrition. Since the early 1990s he has studied the impact, structure and outcome of migration from indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Mexico to the US with support from the National Science Foundation. He has also conducted comparative research on Mexican, Dominican and Turkish migration. His work on traditional foods, nutrition and migration was supported by the National Geographic Society. In addition to ongoing work in Oaxaca, he is currently studying the migration of Mexicans to Columbus.
Part II - March 9 - the series will continue with a guided discussion of food and faith in religious text. How are we similar? How do we differ? Explore these questions of food and faith with clergy and lay leaders from our three organizations. Leaders will provide selected text readings and lead small study groups.
Part III - May 4 - serve the needy in your community. Everybody Eats will join together to cook and serve the needy in our community.
Part IV - June 8 - Celebrate Share food from our Family Kitchens Party. Gather at Temple Israel to share food together.
