Press Release: Emanuel Synagogue, Plus61J and Mazon host a screening of acclaimed documentary ‘Breaking Bread’ – PRWire

Posted By on June 16, 2021

Emanuel Synagogue together with Plus61J and Mazon are hosting a screening of Breaking Bread, plus a post-screening cooking demonstration with acclaimed Chef Michael Rantissi on Wednesday 23 June.

In a film which SBS Australia said was feel good and extremely appetizing...A mouth-watering film, Breaking Bread shows how Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel is on a quest to make social change through food.

Having founded the A-sham Arabic Food Festival, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on exotic dishes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup), and qatayef (a dessert typically served during Ramadan), she is among other things, the first Muslim Arab to win Israel's version of MasterChef.

Breaking Bread is a film about hope, synergy and mouth-watering fare. Its a film that illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than their religion; on the public, rather than the politicians.

Emanuel Synagogue invites you to join them for an evening of joy, where after watching the film, attendees can enjoy a cooking demonstration by renowned Chef Michael Rantissi, and with Mazon launching their Winter soup appeal, guests will be able to make a difference.

In what promises to be a nourishing evening from every perspective, attendees will be able to enjoy a film, a nosh, learn something new and make a positive social impact all in the one event.

WHERE: Emanuel Synagogue, 7 Ocean St, Woollahra

WHEN: 6.30pm, Wednesday 23 June

PRICE: $35 per person; all proceeds going to Mazon.


The screening of the Israeli film "Breaking Bread" is the perfect start to the 2021 Mazon Australia Shavuot Soup Bag campaign in Sydney.
