Senior Program: Everybody Eats

May 13, 2019, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Please join United Hebrew, Shaare Emeth, Temple Israel and Temple Emanuel for a Senior Lunch program at Shaare Emeth on Monday, May 13 at 12 noon.  The St. Louis Jewish Food & Foodways Project is in the process of gathering information about those who owned, operated, or even visited various Jewish-owned food-related businesses. From the early 19th century through the late 20th century, there were hundreds of Jewish businesses that revolved around food, including delis, bakeries, butchers, fruit & produce vendors, grocery stores, poultry and egg men, confectioners, fish markets and supermarkets.  Diane Everman, PhD and archivist for St. Louis Jewish Community Archives will offer a glimpse into the findings to date.

Lunch prior to the program will be catered by Protzel’s Deli and will include your choice of sandwich; corned beef, turkey or egg salad and your choice of side; cole slaw, potato salad and either a New York knish or potato knish.  Dessert will be an upside-down cupcake.  Please let us know if you are gluten free.

The cost to attend is $10 per person. To make a reservation, mail the name, phone number and lunch preference of each person attending, with a check written to “Shaare Emeth,” to: Shaare Emeth Seniors Lunch, 11645 Ladue Rd., St. Louis, MO 63141 by May 6. You may also call Shaare Emeth 314-569-0010.   Please let us know if you need a cab when you make your reservation.
