As the Congregation B’nai Harim prepares for its fourth annual Deli Nite today, organizers of the all-you-can-eat’ event want the community to know all are welcome.

“You don’t have to be Jewish to eat Jewish food,” said Jay Sondheim, president of the Nevada County Jewish Community Center.

From 5 to 8 p.m. at Miners Foundry Cultural Center, congregation volunteers will offer up authentic New York-style Jewish deli food that comes straight from the source.

Organizers purchase most of the food from the same purveyors who supply the great delis in New York and Los Angeles. The pastrami, corned beef, salami and kosher hot dogs are flown in for this annual event, which is one of the community center’s primary fundraisers for the year.

Sondheim personally picks up the loaves of freshly baked rye bread and delivers it to the foundry on the same day as the event, he said.

There will also be potato salad, coleslaw, pickles, sauerkraut and New York cheesecake. Coffee and soft drinks are included in the ticket price. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Pianist Joe Hammel will play Frank Sinatra’s greatest hits throughout the evening.

Proceeds raised from Deli Nite benefit the Jewish Community Center, which serves about 100 people locally.
