Celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut with a light Israeli meal, followed by a screening of the fascinating film In Search of Israeli Cuisine. The last movie in this year’s Cathy and Morris Bart Jewish Cultural Arts Series, In Search of Israeli Cuisine is a portrait of the Israeli people told through food. The feature-length documentary puts a face on the culture of Israel, profiling chefs, home cooks, vintners, and cheese-makers drawn from the more than one hundred cultures that make up Israel today – Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze. While exploring the country’s dynamic food scene, a rich and human story of the people emerges.
