Course DescriptionJews were among the pioneers settling in South Florida during the early 20th century. Among their contributions were different ways of eating – not always kosher, but certainly tasty! Their legacy has been handed down to millions of people who call this region home or visit – both Jews and non-Jews. This program will highlight the celebrated restaurants, cuisine, and eating habits created and sustained by Jewish community members in South Florida through the years.
