Have you ever tasted fresh baked rugelach? It’s a warm bread pastry, rolled up with cinnamon, sugar, pecans, chocolate chips, and jams. It’s flaky and somehow still gooey in the center, and the only thing that’s better than the taste is maybe the smell.
Hungry? Well on the last Sunday of every October come feed that craving at the Shalom Y’all Jewish Food Festival, held annually by the Congregation of Mickve Israel. This festival is reaching its 25th year and is only getting bigger: the turn out is said to be an average of 10,000 people, and the synagogue employs over 200 volunteers to make the festival as delicious as it can be!
Held from noon to early evening, this event takes place in Savannah’s beautiful Forsyth Park, in view of the lawns, historic homes, and beautiful Forsyth fountain. So come early with a blanket, set up underneath one of the towering oak trees, and enjoy the fall afternoon with the scent of fresh food in the air. And to sweeten this already sweet event, admission is completely free to the public, and food tickets are only $1 each!
