Dothan’s Temple Emanu-El prepares for 2019 Deli Day

Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Temple Emanu-El preparing for its 2019 Deli Day.

Monday afternoon, temple members unloaded boxes filled with thousands of bags of potato chips for the annual Deli Day. However, chips will not be the only item on the menu.

“(There will be) an amazing kosher-styled corned beef sandwich, a kosher dill pickle, one of thousands of bags of chips that we have here,” Deli Day Committee Co-chair Stephanie Butler said. “We partner with Sweet & Sassy, which they make these amazing gigantic chocolate chip cookies.”

The meal, which is actually Jewish-American inspired, can be ordered by calling the temple or by ordering online. Once an order is placed, there are two ways that it can be picked up.

“If you order eight or more, we’ll be happy to deliver to you,” Butler said. “But if it’s a smaller order you can come on and pick it up at the temple.”

Deli Day is not only an opportunity to get a corned beef sandwich, it also serves as a fundraiser that supports the temple year-round.

“We do have Neighbor Night and other events like that where people are welcome to come in here, but this is probably our best opportunity to really get out into the community and share a little bit of Jewish food culture with people,” Butler said. 

Each bagged lunch costs $12.50; pickup times are set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 9.

Cash and credit card payments will be accepted.
