Jewish Food Festival

Come and Celebrate the Foods of Israel

2020 York JCC Jewish Food Festival logo

A Taste of New York City in York, PA

Once a year the York community can come and experience the tastes of kosher-style deli food. The festival’s staples? Two hundred pounds of brisket made in house by a team of dedicated volunteer chefs along with homemade matzah ball soup.

Food is an important part of Jewish gatherings, and our Food Festival is all about getting together to indulge in overstuffed sandwiches while learning a little about Jewish culture and customs. We are very proud that this festival attracts over 1,500 people year-after-year, and invite you to have lunch with us, volunteer with us, and/or sponsor this beloved delicious event!

Due to COVID-19 and its prevention, this event is postponed at this time. For more information, please contact Culture & Arts Director Rachel Singer at
