The 38th annual Jewish Food Fair will open its doors Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a cornucopia of specialty foods, seasoned with accompanying entertainment, crafts, music, art and culture.

Heap your plates with corned beef, pastrami, brisket, bagels and lox, latkes, stuffed cabbage, pastries from the bake shop, and many more Jewish specialties. Most of the dishses are handmade on site, but the festival also sources goods from Canter’s Deli in Los Angeles (try the rye bread), Saul’s Deli in Berkeley and the kosher Grand Bakery in Oakland (try the challah), among others. There will be packaged kosher foods to go, along with many new vegetarian dishes.

Bring your hunger to Congregation Beth Shalom between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Find it at 4746 El Camino Ave. in Carmichael; 916-485-4478.
