Food Fights: Authority and Authenticity in American Jewish Food, with Rachel Gross

This Fall, San Francisco State University professor Rachel Gross is presenting three lectures on American Jewish food.

Session #1, Sunday, October 24, 7-8:40pm PT, The Deli Revival and Practicing American Jewish Religion. In the twenty-first century, there has been a nostalgic resurgence of interest in the Jewish deli menu. Jewish studies professor Rachel B. Gross examines how a revitalized deli cuisine reflects the longing of American Jews for authentic Jewish pasts and serves as a way to pass on Jewish values to future generations. Engaging in the deli revival provides an alternative, under-appreciated way of practicing American Jewish religion. Presented by Under One Tent.
