Cooking Jewish: Purim
Like many other Jewish holidays, there are specific foods and activities for Purim, and of course, there is also the story of Purim. How can we combine food and family practices to make this holiday meaningful? What if you’re not Jewish but you’re responsible for your family’s holiday celebrations? Or, maybe you are Jewish, but you never celebrated Purim growing up. Join us for cooking and sharing recipes, ideas, and activities to make a fabulous holiday for you and your loved ones!

She has chaired the Interfaith Committee of the Union for Reform Judaism, Pacific West region, has served on the Interfaith Advisory Committee for the Jewish Community Federation Endowment Fund, and on the Planning Advisory Committee of Interfaithfamily.com.
