Celebrate the history, diversity, and excitement of Jewish food

JCC Association of North America is excited to share the following opportunity from our partners at The Great Big Jewish Food Fest.

The Great Big Jewish Food Fest is a 10-day online festival celebrating the history, diversity, and excitement for all things Jewish food. Join us for cooking classes, virtual deli tours, film screenings, panel discussions and so much more. All events are free, and we invite donations to help support those in the food industry who have lost critical revenue during the COVID-19 crisis and those who are experiencing food insecurity. 

Why now?

The Great Big Jewish Food Fest was created out of a moment of opportunity, as people are at home and in their kitchens when food professionals are seeking new opportunities to share their expertise, and when a top-tier international festival might be created with relative ease (no travel, no conference facilities, and ironically, no catering to coordinate!). 

Who’s it for?

Programming is designed for all ages and interests. Whether you’re an experienced cook or a novice who’s just getting started in the kitchen, you are welcome. Just please make sure to wash your hands before you sit down for a meal.

Who’s behind this?

The Great Big Jewish Food Fest is a collaboration among folks in the culinary and Jewish communities who saw a unique opportunity to enrich the Jewish food space during this unique and challenging time. Check out the extraordinary team who pulled this together in just a few weeks. Darim Online is the fiscal sponsor for the Festival, and we are so thankful for foundation support to make this free for all who want to participate.
