Description

In this class we will explore the intersection between two major topics of Jewish law and culture: food and community.  From the sectarians and rabbis of old to contemporary Hasidic groups, Jews have identified the social elements of eating as ways of creating and demarcating communities.  Through a variety of Jewish texts and practices we will see how the questions of whom to break bread with and whom not is a key portal to understanding how different Jewish communities conceptualized their identities and missions.
