Portland, February 8th, 2015.  A capacity crowd of over 500 people filled the space at Castaway to truly get a Taste of Temple. Event co-chair Tony Urdes embraced CBI’s engaging clergy Rabbi Rachel Joseph, Rabbi Michael Z. Cahana, wife and co-chair Bianca Urdes and Cantor Ida Rae Cahana. Congregation Beth Israel’s 4th annual friendraiser and FUNdraiser brought together a dynamic and multifaceted committee that recruited 40 of the top restaurants, wineries, distillers and brewers to get up close and personal with those attending this ever-popular event.
