Congregation Beth Shalom is hosting its 42nd annual Jewish Food Faire at their Carmichael synagogue on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. This is an all-ages event where you will be able to enjoy amazing and traditional favorites, like lox and bagels, latkes, stuffed cabbage, pastrami, chopped liver, kugel and many other dishes. You’ll also immerse yourself in the Sacramento Jewish culture, and experience the excitement and talent from local (and handmade) arts, crafts and clothing vendors and musicians. You can also participate in the Vitalant Blood Drive and receive a pair of awesome socks! Come eat good in the neighborhood and celebrate your local community at this decades old faire at Beth Shalom, located at 4746 El Camino Ave., Carmichael. Check out for more information on this free event.
