Pop-Up Shabbat PDX

Regular price $0.00

Greetings, friends!

Breaking Bread Dinners Series presents the first Pop-Up Shabbat in PDX. Hosted by Martha Holmberg and Kristin Spear, this dinner is inspired by Jewish culture to be enjoyed by all.

Shabbat is the Friday-night ritual of family and friends gathering around a table for a feast that starts with blessings over candles, bread, and wine...and ends with sweets and often singing (the wine helps with that). Bring your appetite and open mind and join us for an Israeli-inspired meal and a cultural experience. The Shabbat will be led by Devra Ferst, a New York City based food writer and editor who has written for Bon Appetit, Vogue, NPR and more. Featuring homemade challah, vibrant flavors, and seasonal vegetables.

Alcohol available for purchase.

When: Friday, October 6th, 2017 at 7 pm

Where: Martha Holmberg’s Loft, 425 SE 3rd Ave, 3rd Floor

Drinks: Cocktails and wine available for purchase (based on what the cool kids are drinking in Tel Aviv this season!)

Gratuity: in lieu of gratuity we will accept donations for PDX Sack Lunch (Chinese red envelopes provided)

About the hosts...

Martha Holmberg is an award winning cookbook author, chef and all around food and entertaining fanatic that calls Portland her home base. She's cooked in London and Paris and a graduate of La Varenne cooking school in France. She is the current CEO of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, is the co-author of the best-selling cookbook Six Seasons: A New Way With Vegetables with Joshua McFadden, and at any time you might find her brewing miso in her loft or whisking rouille for a fish stew on the coast of Corsica.

Kristin Spear has been a wardrobe and set stylist for 25+ years and is the founder of FaithHaus.com- a new retail experience she calls the marketplace for modern faith. Her love of spirituality and the rituals people use in their lives to stay grounded has led to Breaking Bread Dinners. The definition of breaking bread is to share one's assets with another person or group. It promotes peace and affirms trust.  We believe can grow community through the sharing of ritual and food.
