Sabbath Tables Sunday, November 18th 1:30 – 4pm

at the JMM & RFLM

FREE

Two Museums, two cultures, one special day of tasting, telling stories and sharing traditions. Foodways specialist, Dr. Mary Zajac, and acclaimed storyteller, Diane Macklin, will facilitate discussions about the preparation and presentation of Sabbath tables in the Jewish and African American traditions through interactive dialogue and discussion with the audience. This event will begin at the Jewish Museum of Maryland, with traditional foods of Shabbat, and conclude at the Lewis Museum, with traditional foods associated with Sunday dinner. A brief neighborhood tour will transition the program from the JMM (1:30 – 2:30), to the Lewis Museum (3:00 – 4:00), located a 10 minute walk away.

Sabbath Tables is a Maryland Traditions program of the Maryland State Arts Council and is affiliated with the JMM exhibit, Chosen Food: Cuisine, Culture and American Jewish Identity as well as the National Black Storytellers Conference.

 

All are welcome. Please RSVP to rcylus@jewishmuseummd.org or call 410-732-6400 so we can save you a seat at the table!
