World Kugel Day

World Kugel Day

Sunday, August 19, 2-5 pm at
the Mizel Museum

Jews have been seeking comfort for thousands of years. Many stopped seeking when they found kugel. It’s a taste of childhood, whether enjoyed as a weekly Sabbath treat or an annual holiday side dish. So, for many reasons, this homey casserole is well worth celebrating! CLICK HERE for details and to register.
