Esn Un Fresn: Eating and Snacking in Jewish Kitchens

on display March 26, 2007 - December 31, 2007

Exhibit Overview: Food is an important part of Jewish culture and tradition. This exhibit looks at how four Vancouver-based Jewish families from different backgrounds (an Ashkenazic Eastern European family, a Sephardic Middle Eastern family, a family that keeps kosher, and a Jewish-style caterer) prepare foods that are quintessentially Jewish.
