Jewish food festival set for Sunday
The Jewish Food Festival sponsored by the sisterhood of Congregation B'Nai Abraham is Sunday, Nov. 23, from noon to 3 p.m. in the synagogue social hall at 53 E. Baltimore St. in Hagerstown.
Last year about 350 people attended, says Jeanne Jacobs, who is chairing the event along with Delcina Lechten.
At least that many are expected this year, and they'll be seeking traditional favorites such as matzo ball soup, beef brisket, potato knishes, blintzes, noodle puddings and chopped liver. Other specialties are chicken couscous and kasha, a mixture of pasta and buckwheat.
Desserts will include cheesecake, Danish pastry, tarts, cookies and cakes. Other items available for purchase include bagels, challah and rye and pumpernickel breads.
