If you are what you eat, then we can learn a lot from several surprising developments in the American Jewish food scene. This lecture’s “four-course menu” begins with a discussion of the nonkosher feast that inadvertently caused American Reform and Conservative Judaism to head in opposite directions. We move to the invention of square matzah and the marketing of Manischewitz to Jewish and non-Jewish consumers, and from there to the lasting impact on American Orthodoxy of certifying Coca Cola as kosher. Finally, we explore how and why American Jews came to embrace Chinese food. Light Jewish Chinese snack to follow.
