March 8: Riverdale: The History Of Gefilte Fish
Gefilte fish is a staple in many of our homes — but do we really know why?
On Friday, March 8, Rukhl Schaechter, editor of the Yiddish Forward (Forverts), will teach the eighth grade class at Kinneret Day School, in Riverdale, New York, about the history of the traditional dish.
During the Powerpoint presentation, at 12:45 p.m., Rukhl will dip into how and why gefilte fish and other Ashkenazi dishes changed dramatically among the East European Jews who immigrated to America.
Rukhl has previously written about the head of Kinneret, Aaron Frank, and how he became the unlikely leader of the school.
