Film screening: "Meating" with Tradition
Presentation by filmmaker Aaron Davidson
Paradoxically, kosher meat is available in more and more places, yet many kosher butcher shops are closing around the country. In this film, Aaron Davidson visits Miami Beach’s last surviving stand alone Kosher butcher shop to find out why customers keep coming back, and it's as much about the “meat” as it is to “meet”.
