SOLD OUT – Walk & Eat Tour of Chelsea

Part 1 of the Kitchen Exploration Series:

By the 1920’s, Chelsea was known as “Little Jerusalem;” in the 1930’s, Chelsea’s population peaked at 44,000, with Jewish people making up nearly half of the population. Explore this history during a two-hour walking tour with Dr. Ellen Rovner, a Boston University cultural anthropologist (whose family goes back 4 generations in Chelsea). Beginning tour location will be announced one week to 5 days before tour date.


$20, limited to 20 people


About the series:

JArts presents a new series exploring the role of the Jewish kitchen in the history and culture of Boston. From the West End to the suburbs, Jews and their neighbors have long shopped together and shared recipes. These fusions of food traditions have contributed a special flavor to the rich melting pot that is our great city.

We’ll explore the connections between ethnicity and identity through food and conversation.
