WATERVILLE — The Jewish Table with Eli Rigosa is set for 3-5 p.m. Sunday, April 3, at Beth Israel.

The participatory, hands-on workshop will explore the ancient origin and meaning of bread on the Jewish table. From early First Temple traditions and the indigenous grains of Ancient Israel, and what are the forgotten authentic grains of Chametz to how people can celebrate and reinvigorate their Jewish table today will be covered.

Those who attend are asked to bring favorite bread recipes to share and personal stories of bread and family. Participants will receive a bag of fresh-milled einkorn flour to take home. Einkorn was the grain eaten by Abraham and Sarah.

Rogosa is an Israeli food and farming anthropologist and an artisan baker who lives part-time in Waterville. For more information, visit growseed.org.
