On the Chocolate Trail

On Jews and Chocolate: Semi [te] Sweet {The Exhibition} Herbert & Eileen Bernard Museum of Judaica - Temple Emanu-El
1 East 65th Street. New York, NY
October 20th, 2017 - February 25th, 2018

Opening: October 20, 2017 | 6:00 PM*

Imagine the intersection of Jewish life and chocolate, and those are the markers that likely come to mind. Less likely, but no less pivotal, is the liquid delicacy that Inquisition-era Sephardi Jews introduced to France, or the 19th-century Viennese boychik’s invention that went on to become the Austrian it dessert, aka sachertorte. Yes, there are hundreds of years of chocolate-swirled Jewish history that you probably haven’t had the pleasure of sinking your teeth into…yet.

Join us for the opening reception immediately after services. Over a feast made entirely of chocolate—from traditional cakes and cookies to the most sumptuous of surprises—Rabbi Deborah Prinz will share fascinating stories from her book, On the Chocolate Trail: A Delicious Adventure Connecting Jews, Religions, History, Travel, Rituals and Recipes to the Magic of Cacao. A reception like none you’ve ever experienced, it’s the ultimate amuse-bouche for our new exhibition.

Show runs from October 23, 2017 to February 25, 2018

Admission is free. To book group tours please call: (212) 744-1400, ext. 313
