For the Love of Chocolate: The Journey of Jews and Chocolate

Hosted By: Moment Magazine

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Whether you eat it as candy, bake with it to make desserts or simply drink it on a cold day, chocolate has the ability to soothe the soul. But did you know that Jews were an integral part of the chocolate trade centuries ago, helping to introduce chocolate to countries around the world? Michael Leventhal, editor of Babka, Boulou & Blintzes and author of The Chocolate King will share the journey of Jews and chocolate, dating back to the 1600s, a sweet pairing that was Beshert, “meant to be.” Leventhal will be in conversation with Moment editor Sarah Breger. This program is sponsored by Moment’s Beshert project.
