Build Bridges and Enjoy Afghan Cuisine at “Tables Across Borders”

09/22/2023 09:48:21 AM


Please join us for a multicultural community dinner cooked by Bakht Mohammad, on Sunday, October 1, 5:00–8:00 pm, in the Swarsensky Social Hall. Chef Mohammad is an evacuee from Afghanistan who has started his own catering business, Afghan Kabul Cuisine.
“Tables Across Borders” is co-hosted by Temple Beth El and Jewish Social Services (JSS). It is one of a series of multicultural community dinners highlighting the cuisines and cultures of local chefs who are refugees or who are seeking asylum. The goals of this project, according to Kai Gardner Mishlove, executive director of JSS, are to provide a pathway to employment for JSS clients, build bridges between local ethnic communities, decrease antisemitism and racism, and foster cross-cultural understanding. The Madison dinners build on the success of similar dinners in Milwaukee.

Registration closes on Wednesday, September 27, so sign up today! All proceeds go to the chefs to help them build their businesses. Please contact Jim Mackman ( if you would like to attend the dinner but have difficulty affording it.
