Zoom event with Sommelier, Evan Hufford
$65 per *member, which includes a flight of wines.
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
We are delighted to be joined by Evan Hufford, a Sommelier for many Michelin starred restaurants. For this fabulous event, Evan has curated several of Israel’s finest wines — three white and three red — which we will drink together and discuss. In addition to Evan’s expertise, Rabbi Jonathan will weigh in on the significance of wine in Jewish ritual and tradition, as well as the process of making wine kosher.
Prior to the event, starting on February 16, you may pick up your flight (six 4-oz bottles) of wines from the Temple, contact-free. In addition, to prepare for the wine tasting, please watch the documentary “Somm” beforehand. This 2012 film, which features the attempts of four candidates to pass the extremely difficult Master Sommelier examination, can be found on Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video
