Join us on November 5th for a special event co-sponosred by the Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine

The Maine Jewish Film Festival and Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine Present: In Search of Israeli Cuisine Film Screening and Tasting Menu.

In Search of Israeli Cuisine is a portrait of the Israeli people told through food. Through scenes that are mostly cinema verité— the James Beard award winning chef Michael Solomonov, visits farms, markets, restaurants, kitchens, landscapes, and history. Profiling chefs, home cooks, farmers, vintners, and cheese makers drawn from the more than 100 cultures that make up Israel today – Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze- a rich, complex and human story emerges. (Documentary, 94 min.)
