The Beth Israel Bazaar has become a significant part of the cultural fabric of the city, drawing in hundreds from across the metro area. Each year, visitors look forward to sampling authentic Jewish food, including traditional delicatessen-style favorites like matzo ball soup and blintzes, as well as Middle Eastern fare such as tabbouleh, hummus, and more. Additionally, visitors can bid on items from local businesses and restaurants in the silent auction, find treasures in the White Elephant sale, and purchase homemade frozen casseroles and desserts from the take-home booth.
Founded in 1860, Beth Israel Congregation has contributed to the greater Jackson community in a multitude of ways, and the Bazaar is just one of the congregation’s many legacies. The Beth Israel Sisterhood began as the Jackson Ladies’ Aid Society in 1900, and since that time it has prioritized giving back to the greater Jackson community. From rolling bandages for the American Red Cross during World War I and feeding local servicemen during World War II, to working with many of Jackson’s charitable organizations today, Beth Israel as a whole has proudly followed its Sisterhood’s lead in a sustained commitment to philanthropic giving and voluntarism. With the Bazaar now a production that includes the entire congregation, its mission is no exception: a portion of the proceeds from the event help Beth Israel continue to support community partners such as Stewpot, Meals on Wheels, Matt’s House, Sims House, and the Salvation Army.
The unparalleled Jackson culinary tradition will be held at Beth Israel Congregation, 5315 Old Canton Road, from 10am – 6pm on Wednesday, March 27.
