DECEMBER 9, 2011

With Special Guest

Rabbi Mary L. Zamore

The Sacred Table celebrates the ideology of educated choice. It

is comprised of a series of essays by a range of thinkers that present a

diverse variety of voices, opinions, and options, highlighting the Jewish

values that shape our food ethics. Themes include concern for oppressed

agricultural and food workers; kindness to animals; guarding one’s health,

including food allergies and eating disorders; the spirituality of eating and

fasting; caring for the hungry; environmental ethics; the local food ethos;

perspectives on kosher (Kashrut); scarcity and sustainability; and food

preparation as a Holy act.

“At a time when food and issues of eating and sustainability are on our

minds and in the news, The Sacred Table offers up groundbreaking

Jewish perspectives. It enables us to engage with Jewish values regarding

food and eating, and apply those values to contemporary concerns. The

book doesn’t take a position on any one approach to food. Rather, it

offers models and options, and underscores questions to ask about ethical

eating,” said Rabbi Mary L. Zamore.

“This volume is exactly what the Jewish community needs. The Sacred

Table takes on the big questions about what it means to eat in a way

consistent with our values in the age of the factory farm and industrial

food. Especially impressive is the way it brings Jewish insights to bear on

animal protection, ecological issues, and dietary choices like going

vegetarian or being a selective omnivore. There is no better resource on

Judaism and food available today."

author of Eating Animals and Everything is Illuminated
