73rd Annual Kosher Dinner

When: Sun., March 9, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. 2014

Spokane’s annual kosher dinner began as a celebration of Jewish tradition, but it’s since become a tradition of its own. Now in its 73rd annual year, the kosher dinner predates Temple Beth Shalom itself, which formed in the 1960s when the old Keneseth Israel building was razed to make way for I-90, and many of the congregation volunteers who work behind the scenes around the clock to make it happen. The program includes music and entertainment, but it’s the food — all prepared according to kosher standards — that can’t be found in this quantity at any other time in Spokane: tender beef brisket, soft challah bread, potato knishes, carrot tzimmes, spiced apples, apricot kuchen and more.
