Friedman Family Foundation Presents the Jewish Food & Culture Fest featuring the When Pigs Fly Kosher BBQ Cook-Off

May 5, 2019 From 11AM-3PM

For the second year, the Jewish Food Festival and the When Pigs Fly Kosher BBQ Cook-Off are coming together for a community-wide event. This year is made even more special as we celebrate the 71st Anniversary of the birth of Israel.

This event will foster an appreciation for Jewish culture and traditions, and bring together the broader Jewish community in a single, powerful effort. Jews and friends of the Jewish community from across Birmingham will come together to enjoy a fun-filled day of delicious food, friendly competition, musical entertainment, and educational activities for all ages.

This event is free and open to the public. Food will be available for purchase. Join us for this community-wide celebration! Sponsorship opportunities are available. As a sponsor, you and your organization can be a vital part of a Birmingham tradition. Sponsors will receive excellent publicity and perks.

Proceeds from the Friedman Family Foundation Jewish Food and Culture Fest featuring the When Pigs Fly Kosher BBQ Cook-Off will benefit the Birmingham Jewish Federation, Levite Jewish Community Center, Temple Beth-El, Temple Emanu-El, Chabad of Alabama, N E Miles Jewish Day School and Knesseth Israel, all of which are 501(c)3 organizations.
