A Tour into the Enlightenment Era with Breakfast
What does Enlightenment taste like? On six Sundays in May and June, the JMB and the Museum Café Lina are offering a journey into the Enlightenment era with breakfast.
The Fromet Mendelssohn Brunch will dish up special culinary discoveries from the Jewish Enlightenment, also known as Haskahlah. On the menu you will find, for example, kurkumen fricassee, broken pea salad, and mulberries with macaron cream . The brunch can be enjoyed either before or after the tour.
The tour into Fromet Mendelssohn's era begins at 12 noon. In Berlin's salons, men and women, Jewish and Christian alike, would meet to discuss the issues of their times. It was not only literature and music that were discussed, but also questions of emancipation and belonging – neither women nor Jews had equal rights in Fromet’s era, but much seemed possible.
Fromet, born Gugenheim, met her future husband Moses Mendelssohn in Hamburg. Moses was a frequent guest at her parents’ house. Even back then, culture and politics were discussed at the table – and you can continue this tradition at the Fromet Mendelssohn Brunch!
