From Latkes to Lattes: Hazon’s Conference on Jews, Food, and Contemporary Life
December 14-17, 2006 at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center (Falls Village, CT)
Jewish food traditions are rich and ancient. And today, growing numbers of people are also beginning to think about contemporary food issues. Hazon is at the forefront of the emerging movement at the intersection of Jewish life and contemporary food issues. Our conference will examine questions such as:
· How do we add a distinctly Jewish flavor to today’s healthier food?
· How do we eat sustainably while maintaining Jewish food traditions?
· What would it take to bring shleimut (wholeness) into eating, both at home and at Jewish institutions?
· How can we gain a more direct connection to where our food comes from?
Please join us for a rich and varied program with family-friendly activities, a diverse and inclusive Shabbat and Chanukah celebration and wonderful food.
