Cong. Beth Shalom Brandon

One family, different customs: A series of talks that explore Sephardic Jewry is being given by Rabbi Besty Torop. As Jews spread out across the world, they have developed different customs about food, music, lifestyle observances and Jewish holidays. Rabbi Torop’s talks explore how Sephardic Jews – those from Spanish and Middle Eastern countries – have a rich and varied set of traditions that influence Jewish life today. Her first talk was on Oct. 10 and she will give two more, one on Oct. 17 and another on Oct. 24, all at 7 p.m. This course is free and open to the community.

Sephardic cooking class: In conjunction with the classes on Sephardic Jewry, Sheila Fishman will present a program about Sephardic cooking on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. She will discuss the history of Sephardic cooking, take a look at recipes, and share some insights into this exotic way of preparing foods.

The program will include preparation of two dishes – Khoresht-E Hulu (Persian Peach Stew) and Sabzi Polo (Herb and Rice Pilou). Those attending should be prepared to put on aprons and help with the preparation, and later, there will be a tasting, complemented with glasses of wine. RSVP to Fishman at (813) 833-7843 or at Anyone interested in contributing a snack or treat, should notify Fishman.
