In the spirit of our JCDS Matters of Taste event, where chefs, musicians, and authors shared their crafts, we are excited to welcome an additional luminary, Dr. David Kraemer, to join us for our final learning opportunity of the 2020-21 school year. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how and why the laws of kashrut developed over time. His methods exemplify two of JCDS’ Habits of Mind and Heart: Problem Solving and Evidence. David Kraemer is Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics at the Jewish Theological Seminary, where he is also director of JTS’s world-renowned library. Among Professor Kraemer’s many books and articles is his influential Jewish Eating and Identity Through the Ages (Routledge, 2007). In line with his method of scholarship, Professor Kraemer identifies not only the law, but also the context in which the law develops. Kraemer’s next book, to be published in 2022, is a history of Jewish ideologies of Diaspora.
For security reasons, if you know of other parents or community members who would like to register, please ask them to fill out their own RSVP. Thank you!
