“It’s so exciting for me to think that so many people would come to the story and that it could speak to so many people. That wherever we live, as Jews, we have a shared history and we have shared concerns."
“I have been a part of the One Book One Jewish Community program since the beginning. The flurry of amazing programs for its 10th anniversary, which reached many people of all ages in the Greater Philadelphia Area, breathed fresh life into One Book and its Implementation Team, and we look forward to many more exciting years ahead."
“Steve and I are so honored to be a part of the One Book, One Jewish Community. The recipes and stories in our book are inextricably linked to one another and to the community from which they come. Thank you for selecting Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking and for bringing people together."
