There are few cookbooks that reflect the historic and contemporary diversity of the Jewish community, which we hope to do with Tlaim. Recipes serve as the vehicle for connection and story-telling. We want to share our stories and help create a new way of connecting communities through the Jewish kitchen.

Our team has joined our passion for cooking and our love of Jewish community to create an cookbook inclusive of world Jewry that can be found on the bookshelves of stores across the globe; a cookbook where all Jews can feel seen, appreciated, and welcomed.

We want to use recipes as a “vehicle to confront injustices to prompt meaningful action,” to quote chef and writer Tunde Wey. We invite you to use these recipes as a stepping stone for learning about diverse Jewish practices and experiences to prompt further discussion.
