10 Years of Recipes Remembered

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Recipes Remembered: A Celebration of Survival, written by June Hersh in association with the Museum of Jewish Heritage, is a historical and culinary journey that will feed your heart and soul. The book contains more than 80 remarkable stories gleaned from personal interviews with Holocaust survivors and their families. Each story is paired with the survivor’s cherished recipes, creating a timeless cookbook with more than 170 entries as diverse as the survivors themselves. A soon-to-be-released 10th anniversary edition is a testament to the resilience and tenacity of the Holocaust survivor community, which turned tragedy to triumph and has imbued us all with faith, hope, and optimism.

Join the Museum for a program celebrating Recipes Remembered as Hersh shares her experience writing this unique kosher cookbook based on recollections of Holocaust survivors. Order your copy of the book here. Proceeds from the sale of the book support the Museum.

This program will be held live in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. Attendance will be available in person (limited capacity) and online. Both in person and virtual attendance are free, but a $10 suggested donation helps enable us to present programs like this one. We thank you for your support.
