Temple Beth Sholom and premier caterer Michael’s On East have entered a partnership to provide a new kosher catering opportunity to Sarasota and Manatee counties. Temple Beth Sholom maintains a kosher kitchen and is now working with Michael’s On East Co-Proprietor Phil Mancini to make this kosher venue available on an ongoing basis.
“This is a major break-through for those observing kosher dietary laws and desiring to participate in this gourmet, traditional format,” said Lorie Rabin, catering chair and board liaison from Temple Beth Sholom.
The Temple Beth Sholom kitchen requires no special process to prepare the facility for these kosher events. With this expanded partnership, Michael’s On East has exclusive access to the Temple Beth Sholom kosher facility where preparation is facilitated by Michael’s culinary team and specially-trained Temple personnel supervise for adherence to Conservative Kashrut dietary laws.
“I’ve been privileged to work with the Jewish community in so many ways over the years,” said Phil Mancini. “It is our pleasure to provide this expanded opportunity for clients to enjoy fine kosher catering on-premise at Temple Beth Sholom.”
The Temple’s social hall can accommodate 40 to 240 guests. Members of the community (Jewish and non-Jewish), are encouraged to contact Temple Beth Sholom at 941-955-8121 to check availability and schedule events. Once a date is secured, event coordinators will contact Phil Mancini at 941-366-0007, ext. 227 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange menu selection and a customized catering package.
