Joint wine, cheese (cake) and Torah event May 18

Two reform congregations, Temple Beth-El in St. Petersburg and Temple B’nai Israel in Clearwater, along with Hillels of the Florida Suncoast are collaborating for a multi-sensory experience titled Cheese (cake), Wine & Torah on the evening of Shavuot, Saturday, May 18.

The event at Beth-El will begin at 7 p.m. with an erev Shavuot Yizkor service.

From 7:30-8:30 p.m. the program will be “The Tastes of France” and will include a sampling of wine and cheeses, offered by Clifford and Leslie Will. The main program will be from 8:30-9:15 p.m. when a secret presenter will offer “a cheesy surprise.”

Also during the program Rabbi Michael Torop of Beth-El will speak on “Kosher Wine: an Ethical Dilemma” and Rabbi Ed Rosenthal of Hillels of the Florida Suncoast will speak on “Partying with God: The Saini Banquet.”

The evening will conclude with a cheesecake bake-off at 9:15 p.m. with an opportunity to taste and vote on cheesecakes that participants bring to the event.

There is no charge to attend, but RSVPs are requested. To RSVP, go to or call (727) 347-6136 and while doing so, indicate if you will be bringing a cheesecake for the bake-off. The temple is located at 400 S. Pasadena Ave., St. Petersburg.
