Our New Cookbook Is Here!

“The Jewish Holiday Table: A World of Recipes, Traditions & Stories to Celebrate All Year Long” by Naama Shefi and the Jewish Food Society with Devra Ferst is a vibrant collection of 135 recipes and stories from Jewish families with roots around the world. It’s also a celebration of Jewish holidays, resilience, tradition, and joy. 

Discover a Ukrainian-Mexican Seder menu along with recipes for an Iraqi Purim party, a New York Shabbat picnic, and a Moroccan Sukkot gathering. There are stories of a long journey by camel in Yemen, of survival in Ukraine, of a Bukharian grandmother on YouTube, and of women baking holiday sweets together in what’s now Zimbabwe. With images from award-winning photographer Penny De Los Santos, the book is a dazzling expression of all the ways we celebrate through what we bring to the table.
