Local News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Need lunch plans for Thursday? Stop by the Congregation Achduth Vesholom on Fort Wayne’s south side for deli and for a good cause.

From 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., the Jewish congregation is hosting their 19th annual Corned Beef on Rye – Sure to Satisfy fundraiser.

Larry Adelman, the chair of the annual fundraiser, says the concept behind this fundraiser is to give Fort Wayne a taste of a traditional Jewish deli that is not seen throughout the city.

“If you have a taste for an authentic corned beef sandwich, then this is where you’ve got to come,” Adelman said. “Because there is other corned beef, but this is kosher-styled corned beef, and it comes to us from Chicago.”

Boxed meals will be sold for $18, which include:

  • A one-third pound corned beef sandwich on rye
  • A giant pickle
  • Coleslaw
  • Brownie
  • Drink
  • $10 gift card to Chapman’s Brewing Company
  • Individual bag of Clandestine Caramel popcorn

The congregation’s goal is to raise $20,000 from Thursday’s fundraiser. Proceeds will supplement the Temple’s annual budget and will support operating costs, general maintenance and other programs.
