WHAT’S with this Jewish obsession with food? How is it that food can feed both our bodies and souls? Why do we spend so much time, effort, and money to prepare morsels that melt in minutes on our tongue? Is being Jewish is all about the food?
For answers and even more questions, fascinating discussions, workshops, lectures and demonstrations, the Inaugural Jewish Food and Farm Festival is a golden ticket to a day filled with noshing, knowledge, fressing, sharing and community.
The intersection of farming, food and culture is a cornerstone of Adamama’s offerings.
As Shalom’s director of programs, Rabbi Alon Meltzer said, “Judaism’s approach to food is deeply spiritual. We acknowledge the source of our food and the rewards it provides our body. We should be acutely aware of all the moving parts that it takes to get food from farm to table.
This is why so many of our commandments, and so much Jewish philosophy has been based around the spiritual nature of food. The Jewish Food and Farm festival celebrates that, and brings thousands of years of rich traditions, customs and flavours under one roof.”
The Jewish Food and Farm Festival, in the spirit of Adamama hospitality, promises to be a delicious stand-out event on the community calendar.
