Deli Day at Temple Israel

The annual Deli Day at Temple Israel brought out hundreds of dessert lovers who bypassed lunch and headed straight for the cake. More than 100 cheesecakes, about 75 chocolate cakes, 15 pound cakes, and dozens of coconut cakes, caramel cakes, red velvet cakes, hummingbird cakes, pecan pies, trays of brownies, biscotti and bowls of trifle kept the dessert table hopping. The congregation also made 2,400 sandwiches of Chicago corned beef on carraway rye for the fundraising feast. Proceeds from the event go to the Wynnton Neighborhood Network.
