Temple Beth Shalom’s 72nd Kosher Dinner will be held March 10 from 11 a.m to 6 p.m. and Spokane community is invited to be a part of the annual event, which draws in thousands of guests.

Each year, Kosher Dinner guests enjoy an authentic kosher beef brisket dinner including appetizers, traditional Jewish side dishes, and desserts.  Live entertainment in the TBS sanctuary is also provided.  Take-out is available for those not able to stay for the full dinner, according to a press release.

After dinner, guests have the opportunity to visit the TBS Del-Bar where they can purchase homemade baked goods. The gift shop will also be open.  There, guests can find unique items, hand-made jewelry, books, ceramic décor, traditional Judaica and gifts. 

According to a press release, “Everyone is invited to get a glimpse into Jewish life in Spokane.”

The tradition that would become the Kosher Dinner began the year before the United States entered WWII and it continues to this day. The first Kosher Dinner was held in the synagogue basement for 200 guests.  Today, the entire Jewish community welcomes over 2,000 guests.
