Decoding and celebrating our food rituals   

Eating is essential to survival – and it is deeply symbolic. We all have our food rituals. Some are sacred, handed down over generations or built into religious and spiritual practice. While others may simply be quirks of personality  created to make meals tastier. Food is built into our identity. Eating not only brings us together it helps connect us to our past.

Starting with Arab and Israeli cultures, Dr. Holly A. Pearse decodes meals and shows how rituals affect how we eat. Please bring your favorite dish OR your favorite recipe to share with everyone as part of our community potluck lunch after Dr. Pearse’s talk.
This event is in relation to JM Drama’s production of The Arab-Israeli Cookbook at The Registry Theatre May 5th to 7th. The play is based upon intimate, first hand interviews conducted in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank. The one unifying feature of these meetings was that those interviewed were cooking their daily meals. The play creates a portrait of the lives of ordinary people. Each person has a story to tell, and a recipe to cook.
