Havurah plans recipe book, foodie ‘fun(d)rive’

MIDDLEBURY — Havurah House, the home of the Jewish community in Addison County, will transform into a lovely, sparkling venue with music, wine and delicious food on Saturday, April 28.
This event — the group’s spring “fun(d)rive,” dubbed “Taste the Tradition” — will provide us with an opportunity to socialize, visit with old friends, make new ones, and just get to know each other better, all while donating to an important cause. Importantly, this year will raise money for Havurah’s capital campaign. That will provide long-needed upgrades to the roof, interior spaces and some of the rest of the Havurah House building at 56 N. Pleasant St. in Middlebury.
“We’ve designed this year’s fun(d)raiser to celebrate our family traditions — in particular, those beloved recipes that have perhaps been handed down to us over the generations by favorite relatives,” said Sarit Katzew, Havurah Program & Outreach Coordinator, in a press release. “For some of us, these recipes may have come from our own research, as we try to recapture treasured family dishes for which we never got the recipes. Or feel free to share your own family’s current favorite recipes.”
Anyone who comes is invited (but not required) to bring such a dish, along with its recipe and, if possible, the story behind it (even, perhaps, a photo of Bubbe or Aunt Esther?). Havurah plans to compile these recipes and stories into a cookbook, which we will publish and sold after the event.
“Even if you don’t bring a dish or cannot attend we still encourage you to share your recipes with us,” Katzew said.
One need not need to be a member of Havurah to attend.
Havurah also lined up some raffle prizes including a dinner for two at a variety of downtown restaurants, a basket of local products (wine, cheese, etc.), a spa basket (massages, soaps etc.), local gift certificates and more. Raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each, and one can enter the ticket in the drawing for the item they are most interested in.
Finally, although this is an evening event for adults, for those families with children, Havurah also scheduled child-friendly programming and a movie screening at Havurah House, all in an effort to make it as easy for you as possible.
Cost for admission to the fundraiser is $10 per child (ages 6-13), which gets them fed and entertained, and $25 per person ages 14 and up. Those who bring a dish and recipe will get a free raffle ticket with admission.
RSVP by April 23 via email to [email protected].
