After the solemnity and introspection of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, celebrating Sukkot offers an opportunity to gather with friends for a good meal and a bit of festivity, all while following Jewish tradition and performing a mitzvah.


This year, the Jewish Community of Louisville’s Young Adult Division is teaming up with Keneseth Israel on Thursday, October 4, at 7 p.m. for a fresh twist on this ancient tradition: Ceviche in the Sukkah.

“We came up with ‘Ceviche in the Sukkah’ because sushi has been done before and we wanted to offer something new,” said event co-chairs Scott and Hunter Weinberg. “We’re extremely excited that Mayan Café is going to cater the event and we’re also grateful to Heaven Hill for providing drinks.

“Keneseth Israel thought this would be a great opportunity to partner with YAD and host the event,” they added, “because it gives the young adult community an opportunity to meet KI’s new rabbi, Rabbi Michael Wolk. We’re looking forward to a night of fantastic food, great drinks, good company and fulfilling the mitzvah of eating in the sukkah.”

The menu includes heavy hors d’oeuvres and an open bar. The cost is $18 per person. To reserve your place, please contact Paula DeWeese, 238-2764 or pdeweese@jewishlouisville.org.

Ceviche is a delicacy common in Latin America. Raw fish is prepared with lime or lemon juice, which reacts with the fish to cook it. All food will be prepared in the Keneseth Israel kitchen under the supervision of Rabbi Wolk. A Vaad approved option is available upon advance request.
