From Latkes to Lattes

What I'm working on these days...




From Latkes to Lattes: Hazon's Conference on Jews, Food, and Contemporary Life
December 14-17, 2006
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 this emerging national movement at the intersection of Jewish life and contemporary food issues. From Latkes to Lattes: Hazon’s Conference on Jews, Food, and Contemporary Life 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?

This is going to be an awesome conference...or at least that's the plan. For more info or to register click here

Leah, you're so cool. (It just had to be said.)

It's going to be a great conference, I have no doubt.

I can't tell you how much I wish I could go to this conference. I'm going to be up there for the Kohenet intensive right around that time and I just don't think I'll be able to swing a second week.

*sigh*
