Deborah Newbrun in Conversation with Sue Fishkoff, author of Kosher Nation
Thursday, April 7
7:30-9:00 PM
$6 JCC Member & Senior / $8.00 General

JCC East Bay, 1414 Walnut St, Berkeley

Come hear a conversation between Sue Fishkoff, author of Kosher Nation and Deborah Newbrun, Hazon's Bay Area Director. The conversation will focus on the current state of kashrut in America, sustainable food and environmental practices. Fishkoff's book is an eye-opening look at the history and practice of producing and consuming kosher food in America.

In this captivating account of a Bible-based practice that has grown into a multibillion-dollar industry, journalist Sue Fishkoff travels throughout America and to Shanghai, China, to find out who eats kosher food, who produces it, who is responsible for its certification, and how this fascinating world continues to evolve. She talks to Reform Jews who are rediscovering the spiritual benefits of kashrut and to Conservative and Orthodox Jews who are demanding that kosher food production adhere to ethical and environmental values. And she chronicles the corruption, price-fixing, and strong-arm tactics of early-twentieth-century kosher meat production, against which contemporary kashrut scandals pale by comparison.
