Anyone with family origins in African, Asian or Latin American countries or those who identify as Black, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, African, Arab, Persian, Indigenous, Sephardi, Mizrachi, or of mixed heritage are encouraged to submit. We, among many, sometimes use the term Jews of Color to invite submitters, but we are aware that this term does not fit everyone who we hope will submit. Race is ultimately a social construct, so this is a complex term to define. If you have any questions, feel free to email us!
Our goal is to use this cookbook as an opportunity to showcase the recipes, experiences, and stories of communities that have historically been excluded and/or marginalized from the Jewish space.
