Kosher Food and Social Justice Subject of Sha'ar Zahav Talk

Rabbi Becky Joseph. - THE PARVE BAKER

Kosher Jews, Mike Tyson, and anyone else interested in a good ole San Francisco-style discussion regarding food, Jewish law, and ethics will want to check out next week's panel discussion at Congregation Sha'ar Zahav in the Mission. "Chewing on Food Justice ― Is Kosher, Kosher?" will range from kosher vegetarianism (who knew?), the strengths and weaknesses of kosher dietary practices, and the role of social justice in a kosher diet. The panel consists of three rabbis and the owner of Saul's Deli, so you know it's legit. Most interesting to us is the presence of "The Rabbi Chef" Becky Joseph, Parve Baker blogger and owner of 12 Tribes Kosher Foods, a new local company. So that you don't go hungry the night before you'll be gorging on latkes and jelly donuts, dinner (kosher of course) will be served for a $10 surcharge.

Chewing on Food Justice ― Is Kosher, Kosher?

When: Tue., Nov. 30, 6:30-9 p.m.

Where: Congregation Sha'ar Zahav, 290 Dolores (at 16th St.)

Cost: $5; $15 with dinner

Tickets available through Eventbrite

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
