Seder Gems From Fruits to Freedom
Join us with Dr. Jon Greenberg, one of the very few living biblical and talmudic ethnobotanists, as he leads us into discovery of how the Pesach seder is rooted in the history of Jewish food and agriculture. Dr. Greenberg will present some of this forgotten Pesach lore that he recovered during his research for Fruits of Freedom, a unique and important new Hagadah. Learn about the German rabbi who reversed the meaning of maror by replacing it with vermouth herbs; Rabbi Hillel's seder burrito; how ancient rabbis used botany, physics, and sophisticated culinary techniques to explain the Paschal lamb barbecue; and how the potential conflicts between Torah and science over leaning left at the seder and baking matzah in the southern hemisphere have been resolved.
