Kosher USA: How Coca-Cola Came to the Passover Seder and Other Tales of Modern Kosher Food

  • American Jewish Historical Society 15 West 16th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Hosted by the American Jewish Historical Society

Hear about Roger Horowitz’s new book Kosher USA, and taste some trendy boutique kosher food! The book follows the journey of kosher foods through the modern industrial food system. Drawing on episodes in the lives of the author’s own family, it traces how iconic products such as Coca-Cola and Jell-O tried to become kosher, and what made Manischewitz wine the very first kosher name-brand product to gain a wide non-Jewish audience. As the great-grandson of Rabbi Tobias Geffen who kashered Coca-Cola, Rabbi Jonah Geffen will be speaking at this special event.
