Cultural Events

Test Kitchen

Our Test Kitchen explores broad cultural and experiential diversity in Los Angeles and around the world. This series of programming highlights varied global Jewish communities through culinary and cross-cultural Shabbat dinners, panel discussions, and salons, and opens up conversations about immigration, interfaith couples, religious conversion, and more. 

Past Events

Culture Lab: An Evening on Chinese Jewry

At the first event in a series to highlight different Jewish communities around the world, professor Xu Xin, China’s leading expert on Jewish Studies, led a fascinating talk on the history of Jews in China.

Post-Undergraduates: A Night at Angel City Brewery

We launched a new network of postā€undergraduates in response to a demonstrated need for a space for recent college graduates and current graduate students to connect. Fifty participants took a brewery tour and had an opportunity to socialize with fellow participants.

Syrian Shabbat

Our Test Kitchen launched with an intimate and authentic Syrian meal in a private home, and provided opportunities to learn about and discuss Syrian Jewish culture, history, and influence.
