FJC and the Worcester JCC invite you to this virtual Jewish Book Council talk by Faith Kramer. Whether you are an experienced cook or a novice, a Jew or just curious about Jewish cooking, 52 Shab­bats invites every­one how Jews hon­or Shab­bat with a spe­cial meal on Fri­day evenings. It has more than 90 mod­ern recipes (includ­ing many veg­e­tar­i­an options) that add fla­vor and mean­ing to the Shab­bat or hol­i­day table. 52 Shab­bats can be your guide if you have ever thought about start­ing, shar­ing, or expand­ing your cel­e­bra­tion of Shab­bat, or just adding to your Jew­ish food reper­toire.  The book’s many essays and sto­ries also explore Shab­bat tra­di­tions, the Jew­ish cal­en­dar, and the sym­bol­ism of foods in Judaism, offer descrip­tions of Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ties around the world, and inves­ti­gate the glob­al Jew­ish pantry. Kramer’s cook­book won gold in the Fore­word Reviews Indies Book Award for 2021 in the cook­book category.

Faith Kramer learned to love Shab­bat from her grand­moth­er, who was a ter­ri­ble cook, and how to impro­vise recipes from her moth­er, who was a fear­less one. Kramer is cook­ing colum­nist for j.the Jew­ish News of North­ern Cal­i­for­nia, and lives in the San Fran­cis­co Bay Area.
