Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot’s Annual Gala – NYC 2019

“Essen with the Best: A Night to Celebrate All Things Food” – Museum of the Jewish people at Beit Hatfutsot’s Annual Gala took place the evening of December 2 2019 at the Ziegfeld Ballroom and honored our dear friend Joan Nathan.

It was an evening to remember featuring the best and the brightest in the world of Jewish food. Joan curated a delicious meal for the evening, and guests were treated to a one-of-a-kind food extravaganza, including interactive food displays, remarks from Michael Solomonov, food stories from Boris Fishman, Mark Federman, and Dani Dayan, and a silent auction featuring high-end items from a variety of chefs, restaurants, and wineries across the United States and Israel!
