About Bubbie’s Kitchen
Bubbie’s Kitchen is a place where universal Jewish values are shared, holidays are experienced, foods are tasted, and we learn how mitzvot (good deeds) make our world a better place. Bubbie’s Kitchen is a welcoming place, and there’s room for all at Bubbie’s table.
Bubbie’s Kitchen is an innovative cooking program for children and their families where the food, stories, and culture of the Jewish people come to life. Traditionally, older generations have transmitted a cultural narrative to younger ones. Children today, however, are less likely to live with, or near, extended relatives. The program replicates a Jewish grandmother’s (Bubbie’s) kitchen where language, recipes, music, stories, and activities can be preserved and passed on to the next generation.
As the Jews traveled around the changing world, their food has become unique to those continents and countries. Each week, children in our after-school program can visit a new country that is significant to the Jewish people and learn of their cuisines and traditions. Places like Morocco, Germany, the Dominican Republic, and India all come alive through food.
