Jake Cohen Jew-ish: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch

Ticket $6 or Book & Ticket $38, VIRTUAL Cooking demo event for High Holidays in partnership with National JCC Literary Consortium


In Conversation with Holly Firfer, Atlanta Media Personality

A brilliantly modern take on Jewish culinary traditions for a new generation of readers, from a bright new star in the culinary world.

When you think of Jewish food, a few classics come to mind: chicken soup with matzo balls, challah, maybe a babka if you’re feeling adventurous. But as food writer and nice Jewish boy Jake Cohen demonstrates in this stunning debut cookbook, Jewish food can be so much more.

In Jew-ish, he reinvents the food of his Ashkenazi heritage and draws inspiration from his husband’s Persian-Iraqi traditions to offer recipes that are modern, fresh, and enticing for a whole new generation of readers.

National JCC Literary Consortium Presents Daniel Levin, Proof of Life: Twenty Days on the Hunt for a Missing Person in the Middle East

Wednesday, August 18 at 8 pm ET


Daniel Levin, Proof of Life: Twenty Days on the Hunt for a Missing Person in the Middle East

Ticket $6 or Book & Ticket $36, VIRTUAL event in partnership with National JCC Literary Consortium

In Conversation with Holly Firfer, Atlanta Media Personality

Daniel Levin the son of a diplomat who spent his early years in the Middle east and in Africa then trained as a lawyer. This is a true story about his receiving an urgent call from an acquaintance about a young man who had gone missing in Syria. Over the course of twenty intense days, Levin barters and negotiates his way through Istanbul, Beirut, Amman, and Dubai on a quest to find the young man who disappeared under suspicious circumstances. This dangerous journey brings him into contact with the shadowy world of the underground war economy where everything is for sale, and he sees first-hand the power of the industries that endlessly fuel these conflicts—the trade of cash, goods, weapons, drugs and most devastatingly, people. PROOF OF LIFE is a mind-blowing exploration of how people use leverage to get what they want, entangling Levin in a dizzying web of favors and counter favors with the highest armed-conflict negotiator, navigating the seedy and dangerous underbelly of the Middle East, where he encounters powerful sheiks, drug lords, and sex traffickers in pursuit of the truth.
