This event has been canceled.

In the first half of the twentieth century, the Yiddish speakers looked to vegetarianism as a way of creating better and more rational world. While some writers explicitly linked radical eating to radical thinking, many otherwise revolutionary journals and newspapers were more likely to look upon growing enthusiasm for vegetarianism as a threat to continuity in traditional Jewish cooking. Jochnowitz will examine serious articles addressing the perceived dangers of a vegetarian diet and biting satire poking fun at the ridiculousness of vegetarianism.
