What makes whiskey kosher? Find out as the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley hosts Men’s Night Out on Tuesday, March 17.
After a hiatus, this popular annual event has returned. The event is open to men who have made a pledge of $365 or more to the Jewish Federation’s Annual Campaign.
This year’s event will feature premium whiskey tastings along with a discussion with Rabbi Nisan Andrews of Congregation Sons of Israel and Rabbi Seth Phillips of Congregation Keneseth Israel about what makes some whiskey kosher and some not.
Delectable pub faire – including the always-requested pigs in a blanket – will be on the menu.
The men will then break into teams for trivia hosted by Chris Roman, announcer for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The winning team will take home – you guessed it – whiskey.
The event is being chaired by Sam Bub, Howard Kushnick and Frank Tamarkin.
