The Silk Tallit Renaissance
Presenters: Dora Piperno, Celeste Pavoncello Piperno, Rav Umberto Piperno Tasting of kosher Italian bottarga, wine and citron sweets from Calabria.
Many of us remember well the years Rav Umberto Piperno spent in New York: his enthusiasm, wisdom and tireless efforts to present the specific traditions of Italian Jews from liturgy to food and beyond. In July he is back in Manhattan to present yet another intriguing project: the revival of the dying Italian tradition of the silk tallit, the prayer shawl. An enterprise rooted in the wisdom of the past, the passion of the present and the innovation of the future.
