Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely scrolled through TikTok at least once in your life. The social media app, which has over 689 million users — many of which are Gen Z (60% of them, to be exact) — has its fair share of Jewish creators.
Known more informally as “Jewish TikTok,” these individuals have utilized their platforms to make viral videos with signature Jewish humor, fight antisemitism and educate others. (We love to see it.)
Several Jewish food influencers have also taken to the app to share droolworthy recipes, from fresh challah to bourekas, to rugelach. Check out a few of our favorite Jewish food TikTokers below — and be sure to hit the follow button for recipe inspiration you won’t want to miss.
