Description

This year’s autumn run of Jewish holy days has been like no other; but even with coronavirus-related restrictions in place, food and community has remained at the heart of celebrations for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot.

Leyla Kazim hears from a socially distanced Sukkot meal in North London, follows a festival food diary from a family in Manchester, chats to singer-songwriter Jessie Ware and her mum Lennie about how they brought Jewish food culture to the table in their podcast and new cookbook, and gets some insight into how traditional fare is getting healthier with food writer Judi Rose.

Through stories of food, family and feasting, Leyla discovers how Jewish communities in the UK are adapting festivities to the current climate, and the modern world.

Produced in Bristol by Lucy Taylor.
