Join us for an immersive Sephardic culinary experience where participants will get a taste of traditional North African and Middle Eastern Passover recipes and stories from JIMENA speakers. Guest chefs will each prepare and demonstrate a traditional Sephardic dish from their country of origin. These chefs and other members of the community will share their stories and the family histories that go along with them. Samples of each dish will be available to taste. Come for the food, stay for the conversation.

Guest chefs Gina Waldman, Corrine Levy and Gilad Mimran will each prepare and demonstrate a traditional Sephardic dish from their country of origin. 

Reboot affirms the value of Jewish traditions and creates new ways for people to make them their own through creative projects inspired by Jewish ritual.

JIMENA (Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa) endeavors to address the existing gaps in the historical narrative of the Middle East and North Africa by sharing the Mizrahi and Sephardi story of oppression, plight and displacement.
