Since 1988, the Annual Jewish Food Festival ("JFF") has been put on by our entire congregation for the entire community. It is more than our biggest fund-raiser, it has become a "must-do" for many in the general community. The JFF features traditional Jewish food, tours of the synagogue with explanations of Jewish traditions, the dramatization of a traditional Jewish marriage ceremony, entertainment, and craft booths.
The 27th annual Carmel event premiers at Congregation Beth Israel. As we delight our guests with homemade comfort foods such as potato latkes, kugel, blintzes, corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, tasty home baked challah, rugelach and mandelbrot, and of course, chicken soup. Klezmer music, a Jewish wedding enactactment, Israeli folk dancing, sanctuary tours and handmade Israeli and American crafts create a fun, outdoor cultural event for the entire family. For more information, contact Congregation Beth Israel 831-624-2015.
Plan on joining us in bringing time-honored Jewish cuisine, customs, crafts and entertainment to the community during our upcoming 28th Annual Jewish Food Festival on Sunday, August 23, 2015 from 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM
We hope to see you there!
