From Lox to Latkes: How Food Shapes Our Family’s Cultural & Religious Identity (Boston)

June 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT


Coming from different religious/cultural backgrounds, you and your partner likely grew up eating different foods, at least for special occasions—let’s dig into this fruitful topic! What foods are important for you to share with your family and why? Join 18Doors’ Molly Kazin Marshall and other Jewish interfaith couples to talk about religion/culture and food, including family foods that you loved growing up, rituals and traditions around eating and rules relating to what we eat.

Everyone should bring a picnic blanket and if they wish, a printed recipe for a food/dish that holds a special place in their family or their culture. Snacks and nonalcoholic beverages will be provided. We will be outdoors in Waltham (weather permitting) and following 18Doors’ COVID safety guidelines. The exact location will be sent upon registration.

We take everyone’s health, safety, and comfort seriously. All adult event participants must be fully vaccinated and boosted. Please see the registration page for more details.



Molly Kazin MarshallMeet Molly Kazin Marshall

As Boston’s Community Director for the Boston Innovation Hub, it’s Molly’s passion to connect interfaith couples in the Boston area to resources and tools unlocking aspects of Jewish culture and traditions. With a passion for food and drink, Molly enjoys visiting the numerous breweries in the Boston area, plus baking and cooking at home. Kugel is one of her favorite foods, and is one of the few ways she will tolerate raisins. She especially loves hearing her friends who have never had kugel try to pronounce the word.


18Doors believes our community is enriched by the diversity of its members. We welcome everyone, and invite racially diverse and LGBTQ individuals to participate in our programming. All of our virtual programs offer automated closed captioning.
