Taste Tradition at Spertus


TastingTraditionTasting Tradition:
Tales at the Table in Jewish Culture

When: Monday, November 23 (6:30-8:30pm)

Where: Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies

Join Goodman Theatre and Spertus Institute for a special evening of dinner and storytelling inspired by the Goodman’s new production of Alan Gross’ High Holidays.

Food and stories are fundamental to the Jewish experience. Family stories transmit traditions, rituals, history, values and memories from one generation to another. And the foods at the table are so much more than just what’s for dinner. The dishes—how they are prepared and when and with whom we share them—have significance and teach us much about values and ethics.

Join Goodman Theatre and members of 2nd Story, including Ilana Shavanov, Michael Przygoda, and Julie Ganey, as we celebrate—and add to—this rich heritage at Tasting Tradition: Tales at the Table in Jewish Culture

The menu, served family style, will include Potato Kugel, Matzo Ball Casserole, Brisket, Tzimmes, Chicken Pulkies, Sponge Cake, Kosher Wines with Dinner, and House Red and White Wine. Catering is by Laura Frankel of Wolfgang Puck.

Tickets are $36 (all-inclusive).
