If you’re a big falafel fan, like I am, then you could be in for a treat next weekend. It’s said to be “the best falafel you’ll taste outside Jerusalem” and it’s right here in Kansas City at KosherFest on Sunday, June 3.

But don’t make your decision to attend on falafel alone. My friends with first hand knowledge say you cannot miss the Stuffed Cabbage Rolls and the Chicken Shish-Kabob…that they are incredible! I know I want to find out for myself. If the food at KosherFest even comes close to the amazing dishes I devoured in Israel earlier this year, you really have to experience it.

The congregation even shares recipes for KosherFest foods on its website.


For your sweet tooth, be sure to try the Rugelach pastries. These small fluffy roll-like delights contain a fruit and nut filling. Just the right treat on a summer afternoon in the sun. And if you miss it this year, you’ll have to wait two years till Congregation Ohev Sholom puts on the festival again.

You can even take your non-foodie friends. There will be live music, a children’s area and a Shuk (market) selling jewelry, crafts and books.

Come with an appetite and enjoy!
