Portland, February 10th, 2013. A friendraiser as much as a fundraiser, Taste of Temple showcased some of the best culinary talents in Portland. A sold out room of over 350 attendees at the Congregation Beth Israel event to enjoy sampling specialties from more than 30 area restaurants, bakeries, breweries and distilleries. Rabbi Michael Z. Cahana and Cantor Ida Rae Cahana are pictured with event co-chairs Tiffany and David Goldwyn and Ali and Judah Garfinkle.(Photo credit, Steve Bilow) A silent auction, prize giveaway and house party sign-ups – together with ticket sales and Recipe for Success donations – generated over $50,000 for ongoing programming at Beth Israel.
Next year’s Taste of Temple has already been scheduled for February 9, 2014.
