Food is more than just sustenance. It’s a reflection of a community’s history, culture and values. Jewish food is a diverse cuisine that has evolved over many centuries, shaped by Jewish dietary laws (kashrut) and the economics, agriculture, and culinary traditions of the many countries where Jewish communities have existed. Tune back in to check out events and see how the J celebrates Jewish food and culture.

Danielle Wertz is an internationally recognized jazz vocalist, composer, educator, and arranger from Falls Church. After being named a semi-finalist in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition in 2015, she self-released a duo project with Israeli pianist, Tal Cohen. The album was recorded at ABC Studios in Sydney, Australia, and has been receiving high praise since its release in April 2017. Now living on the west coast, Danielle is thrilled to bring her trio back east to play some of her favorite jazz standards, arrangements, and original compositions.
