36th Annual Jewish Food Fair - A Resounding Success!

The 36th Annual Congregation Beth Shalom Jewish Food Fair was an amazing success. More than 1500 people attended the Food Fair and Crafts festival held on September 22, 2013. The CBS community rallied in support of the fundraiser as well as continued our tradition of sharing recipes from past generations.

A huge thank you to our committee chairs, the 2013 planning committee, the bakers and chefs and the more than 100 CBS volunteers who made this day possible. We also want to thank all those that attended the event. We look forward to seeing you next year!

He was haunted by the war in Europe even as he could write Green Eggs and Ham.
