"Jews Around the World" series with Laura Limonic, author of Kugel and Frijoles.
Sutton Place Synagogue
225 East 51st Street, New York, NY 10022
Monday, March 23 at 2 PM
"Kugel and Frijoles" analyzes the changing construction of race and ethnicity in the U.S. through the lens of contemporary Jewish immigrants from Latin America. Since Latino Jews are not easily classified within the U.S. racial and ethnic schema, their ethnic identity and group affiliation challenge existing paradigms. DR. LIMONIC will be discussing: What countries are Latino Jews emigrating from? Why are they leaving? Where are they settling in the U.S? How are their customs, foods, languages, and religious observances different from that of Ashkenazi & Sephardic Jews?
