Temple Concord Sisterhood will welcome Rabbi Rachel Esserman and Deb Daniels for “The Voices of Biblical Women and Food” program to be held on Sunday, February 28, at 11 am, via Zoom. Esserman will discuss Leah and Hannah and Daniels will cook plant-based kosher pareve-vegan recipes inspired by these two biblical women. The recipes and discussion come from “Feeding Women of the Bible, Feeding Ourselves” by Kenden Alfond.
The program is free and open to the public.

Esserman said, “The first time we did this it was just for Temple Concord Sisterhood members. We had such a good time that Deb and I decided to do it again (with different biblical women and different food) and open it to the whole community. Deb did such a wonderful job demonstrating the recipes that we’ve been calling her Sisterhood’s own Rachael Ray. Join us for some food for thought and some healthy food for your body. The questions offered in the book are relevant today and give us much food for thought. The recipes offer us a different way to explore the lives of these women and our own view of the world.”
Daniels said, “The description given in the book is ‘Uplifting the Voices of Hebrew Biblical Heroines and Honoring Them with Simple, Plant-Based Recipes.’”
