a WORKSHOP at the Contemporary Jewish Museum
In the first of three classes, Torah scribe Julie Seltzer, who is writing a complete Torah in the galleries of the Museum as part of the exhibition As it is Written: Project 304, 805, will demonstrate the connections between food and text by combining a personal tour of her scribal workshop with Torah study and a session baking challah in the shape of Hebrew letters.
Before becoming a scribe, or soferet, Julie Seltzer was a baker at the Isabella Friedman Center in Connecticut. Among her culinary achievements was a series of challah breads evoking Hebrew letters, or a theme from the weekly Torah reading.
Seltzer’s other Food for Thought programs include hamentashen cookies on February 23 and matzhas on March 21.
