This Is What Jewish Looks Like: Michael W. Twitty
Hosted By: Streicker Center Temple Emanu-El NYC
It’s long been a point of pride that Jews are a multicultural people with roots in every corner of the planet; that we are of all hues; that our grandparents spoke Yiddish and Hindi, German and Malayalam, Hebrew and Amharic.
For Black History Month, The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center will celebrate our richly diverse experience through the personal stories of four prominent Black Jews who will talk about life as a minority within a minority and discuss what the Jewish community needs to do to turn the word inclusion into a reality.
A culinary historian and anthropologist, Michael Twitty is the author of The Cooking Gene, the James Beard Foundation book of the year in 2018. Twitty is a popular speaker about how we process our identities through food, as he does in his matzo meal fried chicken and black-eyed pea hummus. He is currently tracing his personal journey as an African American Jewish man in his forthcoming Kosher Soul.
