TABLE TALK: A Conversation on Jewish Music — Past, Present & Future

December 16, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Jewish tradition, both religious and secular, offers an incredibly rich, varied and diverse body of musical expression. From ancient sacred melodies, tothe myriad syncretic hybrids that emerged wherever the Jewish diaspora set foot, Jewish musical sensibilities have had a profound influence on the development of Western music from classical to jazz, avant garde to pop, and beyond. So tonight, as Jewish communities the world over celebrate Hanukkah with candles, fried foods and family, I have invited two acquaintances, both deeply connected to Jewish music, to engage in a fun and fascinating conversation exploring the the further reaches of music and Jewish identity.

PICK-UP DINNER: Old School Guju Classics by Bimal Patel

January 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Even when Indo-Canadians like Bimal Patel go out for Indian food there is a habit to order those go-to, comfort-food dishes like butter chicken, tikka masala, and naan. And why not? They are delicious and familiar, but they're but just a tiny fraction of what Indian cuisine is all about. For Bimal, growing up Gujarati meant a lot more than spicy curries and naan; it was hot rotis with sugar, and lots of lentils, and vegetables never seen in Western supermarkets. Tonight, let them share with you a mix of favourite old-school Guju classics with a few new twists too.
