The United Synagogue of Hoboken hosts a Book Brunch about “The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook: Garden-Fresh Recipes Rediscovered and Adapted for Today’s Kitchen.” This book rediscovers 400 vegetarian recipes that were popularized in Fania Lewando, a restaurant that thrived in Lithuania in the 1930s. Barbara Mazur and Wendy Waxman, the book’s producers, will discuss how they found and translated the text from Yiddish to English. 115 Park Ave. (201) 659-4000 or office@hobokensynagogue.org.
