"The most suitable diet": Jewish Vegetarianism between the wars

Fania Lewando's Vegetarian Cookbook, published in Vilna in 1937, is filled with vivid and sometimes astonishing recipes for vegetables, drawn from Jewish tradition, from European cuisine, from the nascent health food movement, and some entirely new inventions. The book was part of a numerically small but culturally relevant wave of works in the Yiddish language on vegetarianism.  This presentation will look at Fania Lewando's extraordinary book in the context of the Jewish vegetarianism of her own time.
