c/o Columbia Jewish Heritage Initiative

1601 Richland St.

Columbia, SC 29201

Make sure to fill out the “family memory” on the back of the card. Kugels & Collards is particularly interested in:

  • Why this recipe is special to your family?
  • Who created the recipe and when?
  • What ingredients might be “non-traditional?”

Each memory shared by the public can be accessed freely on the Kugels & Collards blog, alongside the associated recipe. These memories and recipes will contribute to the overarching goal of the Columbia Jewish Heritage Initiative: to document and provide access to and awareness of the local Jewish community.

In addition, these recipe cards will become part of a newly created archival collection, “Kugel’s & Collards,” at the College of Charleston’s Jewish Heritage Collection, in hopes that current and future scholars of Jewish foodways will gain a greater understanding of the role food plays in the Jewish community, and how recipe ingredients and techniques have evolved over time.
