Bagels, Knishes and You–The Origins of Jewish Food

BAGELS, KINISHES and YOU — The Origins of Jewish Food

Michael Bloom

What makes a kosher pickle kosher? Does it chew its cud? Why do Jews and delis go together like, well, schmaltz and cholesterol? And what’s the Jewish tie to bagels? Our speaker enlightened us in the spring with a talk on Jews and the Civil War. Ever versatile, this Fall he’ll be back to talk about Jewish food and how it came to be seen as “Jewish.”

Michael is currently a chaplain with the Jewish War veterans and a docent at the 6th and I Historic Synagogue in Washington. He’s a graduate of Yeshiva University, Harvard and the Boston University Law School and served as director of planning and management analysis at the U.S. Treasury Department.

Digging Deeper: Lessons From Archaeology

ASOR (The American Schools of Oriental Research) is an organization that supports and encourages the study of the cultures and history of the Near East.  They are holding their annual conference this year in Baltimore, which means that there will be an abundance of archaeologists and historians in our community over the weekend.

CJE has teamed up with Foundation Stone, a Jewish educational organization in Israel dedicated to making the Land of Israel a prime resource for Jewish identity, continuity and education.  Foundation Stone has made arrangements for several of the scholars attending the ASOR conference to stay over this Sunday (November 24) and provide several sessions at CJE  that will be of interest to anyone who loves Israel and would like to learn more about what Jewish history teaches us about our heritage and identity as a people.

Sessions include a panel discussion about archaeology in our sister city of Ashkelon, using material such as maps and coins in the classroom and a session about the Riddle of the Exodus.
