Recipes Remembered: A Celebration of Survival, written by June Hersh in association with the Museum of Jewish Heritage, is a historical and culinary journey that will feed your heart and soul. The book contains more than 80 remarkable stories gleaned from personal interviews with Holocaust survivors and their families. Each story is paired with the survivor’s cherished recipes, creating a timeless cookbook with more than 170 entries as diverse as the survivors themselves. A soon-to-be-released 10th anniversary edition is a testament to the resilience and tenacity of the Holocaust survivor community, which turned tragedy to triumph and has imbued us all with faith, hope, and optimism.

Safra Hall. To attend the program in person (limited capacity), register here. To attend the program from home by watching the livestream, register here.
