Congregation Ahavath Chesed-The Temple will hold its sixth annual Jacksonville Jewish Food Festival on Sunday, May 7 11:30am- 2:30pm at 8727 San Jose Boulevard. Congregation Ahavath Chesed is the oldest Reform congregation in north Florida, founded in 1882. The festival is the Temple’s largest fundraiser.
The festival will feature an All You Can Nosh (Eat) format that is sure to entice the community’s collective taste buds with delicious Jewish food. This year’s event tastings will focus on traditional, Israeli, Jewish holidays, and desserts” said Sarah Fraden, the chair of this year’s event.
Brisket, corned beef, matzah ball soup, latkas (potato pancakes), bagels, hummus, falafel, kugel and macaroons will be available for sampling by all attendees. Other types of Jewish foods will also be available.
The event will highlight the 6th annual baking contest called Bubbe’s Bake Off – bubbe is Yiddish for “grandmother.” Last year featured expert judges, including food bloggers and recipe book authors. There will be a children's division for our young bakers to participate in as well. This year’s event will also feature the L’Chaim Wine Wall. For $18, attendees purchase a ticket and get to pick a mystery bottle of wine from the wall. There is significance behind the ticket cost – the Hebrew letters in “Chai” (which is part of “L’chaim”) add up to the number 18.
