Join us for a tasty and educational evening in celebration of Israel at 75 with Dr. Ari Ariel! This talk traces the development of Israeli food from the early period of Zionist migration to Palestine to the present. Emphasizing the ways that food cultures change, we will discuss how falafel, a non-Yemeni dish, came to be associated with Yemenite Jews in Israel. Light refreshments will be served as we celebrate Israel's independence day, Yom Ha'atzmaut.
