Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival presents ‘Breaking Bread’

Breaking Bread

Documentary | 85 min | Hebrew, Arabic, English | English subtitles

October 28 • 7 p.m.

Available to view October 28-31.

Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel – the first Muslim Arab to win Israel’s MasterChef – is on a quest to make social change through food. And so, she founded the A-sham Arabic Food Festival, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on exotic dishes. With hope, synergy and mouthwatering fare, Breaking Bread illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than her religion, on the public, rather than the politicians.

A pre-recorded interview with Mizrahi feminist Hadar Cohen, who will share her family’s story of 200+ years living in Jerusalem as well as her journey of reclaiming her Arab identity alongside her Jewish identity will follow this screening.

October 31 • 11 AM:
Live cooking and history session with Israeli-American culinary artists Dor & Ophir Haberer
