Annual Fall Blintze Fest Raises Money For Religious School

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- If you know anything about Temple Beth Sholom's blintze festivals, you know there isn't a shortage of food - anywhere.

Blintzes were abundant this morning at the temple's fall fest.

The flavorful crepe-like traditional food item brought people in for a casual brunch today. Another signature item, kugel, was served as well.

The fall fest is a mor low-key event preceding the Spring Blintze Brunch, which usually draws long lines and wall to wall crowds.

The fest is a way to raise money for the religious school and also incorporate everyone into the temple's deep traditions.

Debbie Steig has been the Rabbi there for seven years, and she said each fest has a successful turn-out. And, of course, the food is an added bonus to the community atmosphere.

"We love this opportunity to share a little bit of our heritage with people, and it seems like the community really enjoys coming out. It's a really nice partnership," Steig said.

And eight dollar donation bought all-you-can-eat blintzes and food plus a drink. It was this morning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
