On a recent morning, I met Naama Shefi for breakfast at Zucker Bakery, a petite Jewish café and bakery in New York’s East Village. Shefi is the founder of the Jewish Food Society, a new project dedicated to preserving and revitalizing Jewish food traditions.

Walking down Yaffo Street in Jerusalem, it is impossible not to be impressed by Israel’s diversity. A Filipino caregiver with a friendly smile pushes a white-haired man in his wheelchair. A Moroccan man leisurely sips his coffee as he watches passersby. An Orthodox Jewish mother shops with her three girls for new clothes. Two Arab-speaking teenagers chat endlessly as they wait to board the busy mid-day train. An Argentinian Taglit group waits in line to buy ice cream. An Ethiopian woman with oversized sunglasses pushes her wide-eyed baby in a stroller.
