Hidden Histories of the Lower East Side: Sephardic Jewish Food Traditions – a free public program with food tastings – will be held on June 4th from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Settlement’s historic headquarters at 267 Henry Street. The event will feature a complimentary bumuelos tasting and a conversation with Sarah Lohman and Jessica Underwood Varma.

The event is free, but RSVP is required.
