European Jewish Food Festival ‘Gefiltefest’ Canceled This Year

When I woke up this morning, I was not aware that a cataclysmic catastrophe had taken place while I slumbered: Europe’s largest Jewish food festival is short a couple dollars this years and will not be taken place. That’s right, no Gefiltefest.

Michael Leventhal, Gefiltefest founder, told the JC: “We hope it will be back. But they are a small team and only have a handful of donors. Fundraising for them is hard — all the trustees have full-time jobs.”

Gefiltefest, a nonprofit group supported by JHub and the Shoresh Charitable Trust, aims to change how the Jewish community thinks about food, “including our culinary heritage, ethics, culture and traditions.”
