Picking up on our theme of French Jewry this year, we’ll devote this Friday Nights Live program to the cuisine of French Jews. Make your favorite quiche! Chocolate truffles! Duck Confit! (Okay, no.) Stay tuned for some recipes from Susan Barocas, making a return visit after our fabulous Turkish Jewish Experience in 2017. We’ll have a short service, a potluck French Jewish feast, and a talk by Susan about French Jewish cooking traditions.
