January 26 through February 2
AN ISRAELI CULINARY TOUR. NO PASSPORT REQUIRED.
All you have to do is order!
Israeli food is so much more than hummus and falafel. This melting pot of diverse cuisines – Moroccan, Yemenite, French, Bukharan, Russian, Iraqi, Ethiopian, Druze, and many others – contributes to the diverse Israeli culinary landscape. To celebrate this diversity of delicious cuisine, JArts created Taste of Israel in 2019, Boston’s first Israeli restaurant week.
Each restaurant will feature specials for the duration of the week. Prices, hours, and ordering information are set by the restaurant.
We at JArts have always been committed to supporting our local restaurants and now more than ever, it’s important you do the same.
Order Israeli “inspired” specials from these participating restaurants.
Hear the story about the food you’re eating from chefs and area experts.

The baking session will be followed by a Q&A with Rukhl and Forward National & Food Editor, Rob Eshman where the two will discuss the cake’s history and relevance.
