The Jewish Project is a portrait of a Jew through ice cream and storytelling. Jared Goodman weaves personal stories of being a Jew with Jewish history and culture, exploring themes of identity, secularism vs traditionalism, the writings of Isaac Bashevic Singer and Abraham Joshua Heschel, plus some klezmer music too. Goodman will host 6 performances around the Portland metro area. Pairing storytelling with ice cream, he aims to combat the spread of anti-Semitism and share Judaism and Jewishness with Oregonians.
All of the desserts are made from scratch, utilizing the best of seasonal and local ingredients.
