Kosher Food and Wine Tasting

As part of our 100 Year Celebration, the JCC will welcome local jazz artist Dwight Lenox to its Food and Wine Tasting on February 2 from 8-10:30 p.m. Jazz will fill the air as Lenox plays favorites from blues to ballads and jazz to swing. His style lends itself to musical selections from Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, James Ingram, Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls and many other artists. Lenox has also been a featured vocalist with the 17-piece Columbus Jazz Orchestra.

“Guests will enjoy the mellow sounds of local jazz favorite Dwight Lenox while sampling wines from around the world and tasting delicious kosher fare,” said JCC Member Services Director Linda Starr. “We are proud to be celebrating 100 years in the Columbus Jewish community and invite members and non-members alike to join the party!”

Wine stewards from Columbus’ The Wine Bistro will offer pairing suggestions for each of the wines poured at the event. Orders placed for favorite wines will be delivered prior to Passover. Guests who order wine at the event receive a 10% discount off of each case ordered. This savings will be donated to the JCC.

In addition to select kosher wines, guests will enjoy kosher cuisine prepared to complement the wines. The menu features three stir fry options — vegetarian, chicken, or beef; steak with portabella mushrooms; chicken wings; and fresh vegetables with assorted dips, spreads, and crackers. An array of desserts featuring pareve cheesecake, a rich chocolate dessert, mints, and wedding cookies will be accompanied by gourmet, micro-roasted coffee from Beanetics Coffee Roasters of Annandale, Virginia.

Guests will have an opportunity to win door prizes including “Take and Bake” Kosher food items from the JCC’s catering menu, wine, JCC gift cards, and gourmet coffee.

Babysitting will be offered for $5 per child. Reservations for babysitting must be made by January 25. Ticket prices are $30 per person prior to January 25 and $35 per person after January 25. Tickets may be purchased at the JCC’s Front Desk or by calling 231-2731. For more information contact Member Services Director Linda Starr at 559-6229 or via email at lstarr@columbusjcc.org.
