Join us for a very special joint event with Temple Shalom, as we host guest speaker, Gil Hovav at The Temple. He will share stories about the Jerusalem of his youth.
Wartime Cooking in Jerusalem
• How do you get a five year old in 1960 Jerusalem to eat his vegetables?
• Why did my mother not eat anything when the 1948 siege was finally lifted?
• What did my great-grandfather do on his deathbed that shocked the British Consul?
Israel’s leading culinary journalist and TV personality, Gil comes from one of the most respected lineages in the Jewish world: the great-grandson of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the reviver of the Hebrew language; grandson of ltamar Ben-Avi, who launched modern Hebrew journalism; and the son of Moshe & Drora Hovav, “founding members” of Israel’s modern day public radio.
This joint programming is made possible by a generous grant from the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence.
