NAAMA @ NOON
Join Bender JCC’s community shlicha (Israeli Emissary), Naama, on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month (via Zoom) at 12:00 PM to chat about everything from Israeli current events and trends to culture and holiday celebrations. We will cover it all. Each week we will discuss a new topic of Naama’s choosing. From week to week, you can expect special guests, interactive exchanges, and engaging conversations. We will light shabbat candles together at the close of each session.
We are kicking things off on March 12. Have a seat at Israel’s “culture table.” Naama will be discussing the multiculturalism and ethnicities in Israel by looking at the many flavors and cuisines that make up Israel’s food scene. Her talk will include a closer look at 3 of the most common ethnic groups in Israel: Moroccan, Russian, and Syrian through the lens of food. You may leave hungry.
