Temple Shalom created an educational Jewish film series and found a welcoming audience. The second in the series, "Searching for Israeli Cuisine," brought in a sold-out crowd on Jan. 29 with a packed, Israeli-inspired dinner followed by even more people arriving for the free showing of the film feature.

"Searching for Israeli Cuisine" went along as Philadelphia restaurateur and chef Michael Solomonov traveled Israel to find out just exactly what Israeli cuisine is. It's many things, he discovered: A mixture of more than 100 cultures and culinary traditions.

For the dinner, Simply Delicious caterer Susan Schenk, had researched and created the different dishes from Solomonov's restaurant Zahav, from Morocco, Jerusalem, the Arab world, Persia, Syria, the Mediterranean and elsewhere.

The delighted committee that had planned the successful event was chair Jane Neff (husband Bob was pouring wine), Beth Byer, Steve Edelman, Joan Mullens, Susan Schenk, Judy Oppenheim and Jo'Ann Supperstein.

Next up is the free Feb. 26 screening of "Rosenwald," the story of Jewish philanthropist and social activist Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears. A "Savory and Sweet" reception, with wine and beer, follows the film. It's $18, reservations at templeshalom.com or 634-5311.
