For over ten years, Shoresh has been debating if 21st century meat is “fit” to eat according to both Jewish and environmental ethics. We have been seeking food choices that are aligned with our Jewish values; food choices that express the highest standard of care for the animals we eat, the earth, and the workers who help bring food from farm to table.
We are excited to continue this conversation, and move forward in our exploration of what it means to eat “Jewishly” in contemporary times.
We hope you will join us for a gourmet, kosher, organic meal featuring locally-raised, heritage chickens carefully prepared under kosher supervision.
Dinner will be followed by a discussion with heritage chicken farmer Frank R. Reese Jr., profiled in Jonathan Saffron Foer’s book and film Eating Animals, to explore the intersections between Jews, food, and animal welfare.
