In the spirit of all good special gatherings of Jews, there will be Chinese food. Thanks to activist/restaurateurs Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowtiz, San Francisco's Mission Chinese Food is designing our Shabbat dinner showcasing climate beneficial ingredients, prepared in collaboration with chef Jeffrey Zurofsky (BravoTV’s Best New Restaurant). You've never tasted a better sustainable meal.
