Kosher Food Fest in Minnesota, Jan. 11, 2015

Food_Fest

On January 11th, 2015, Temple of Aaron will host their first annual Crossriver Kosherfest, bringing together local kosher options including caterers, small shops, and other venues to raise awareness of kosher possibilities. In addition to offering many food choices, they will host sessions/classes to teach about eating kosher and brainstorm on how they can expand the market.

According to Rabbi Jeremy Fine, one of the organizers, “The final element of this event is to offer an opportunity to encourage the twin cities communities to get together.  St. Paulites and Minneapolisites rarely have a reason to travel to the other side of the river. This day of eating and learning will offer an enhanced social dynamic for young and old to mix and mingle. We hope food will bond us together and people will make the 10 minute drive.”

More kosher food options would mean so much to the Jewish communities of Minnesota. “We invite everyone in the area to check out Crossriver Kosherfest. It should be a lot of fun for all ages. If you are a vendor or individual who wants to attend or be involved feel free to reach out to me, RabbiJeremyFine@templeofaaron.org for more details.”

Below is the growing list of vendors:
Milts Kosher BBQ (Chicago), Aviv Vodka, Baldinger Bakery, Breadsmith
Bogarts Doughtnuts Co., Funky Chunky, Jezreel Wines (Israel), Just Truffles
