    Just because it’s a virtual program doesn’t mean you can’t get a taste of the foods Brooklyn’s Jewish communities.

    “Jewish Brooklyn: From Gefilte Fish to Kibbeh” is the first in a three-part series about Jewish life in Brooklyn being offered by the Center for Brooklyn History over the next two months. The first program focuses on the food of Jewish Brooklyn’s Syrian and Russian communities with moderator Jeffrey Yoskowitz, author and co-owner of The Gefilteria, joining Sephardic food expert Jennifer Abadi, Russian food expert Boris Fishman and culinary historian Jane Ziegelman. In addition to the chat and demonstration, participants will be able to get a glimpse at some highlights from the Center’s Jewish History Collection.

    The first conversation takes place via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 11. It is free but online registration is required to log in. For more information, check out the event page online.
