Cultural Exchangeon Friday, March 15th was well attended. 18-20 members gathered.
We marked International Women’s Month by sharing personal stories of the status of women in our countries of origin. Ines A. spoke about her experience in Venezuela as a woman chemical engineer in her field. Debra S. told us fascinating stories about Israeli women and the history and meaning behind “kosher” cuisine.
Although it was a particularly cold day, everyone bundled up and we went to lunch at Zaftigs Delicatessan. Debra recommended a good sampling of typical kosher-style food which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Following lunch, we followed Debra around Brookline as she explained the importance of Shabbat and walked us through a kosher grocery store, “Butcherie” where we saw an impressive array of Jewish and Israeli specialty foods. We then stopped at Kupel’s Bakery to sample some rugallah and poppy seed homentaschen. Delicious! A delightful afternoon was had by all!
