“We’re thrilled that we can engage a wide variety of vendors to entice the community’s collective taste buds with delicious Jewish food. This year’s theme will be Jewish Food from Around the World. We are reminded that traditionally Jewish people adapted recipes to their surroundings, and we can reflect that this adaptation and incorporation of surroundings influenced many different cultures with their food traditions that remain today,” Michelle Pargman, this year’s event chair, explains.
In addition to the foods that represent the Jewish diasporic experience, traditional brisket sliders, corned beef, matzah ball soup, potato pancakes, falafel, kugel and macaroons will be available for sampling as well by all attendees.
The event will highlight the second annual baked goods contest called Bubbe’s Bake Off – bubbe is Yiddish for “grandmother.”
The festival is Temple’s largest fund-raiser. http://www.thetemplejacksonville.org
