I enjoyed reading the article about Jewish food festivals in unexpected places (“Culinary Delights,” June 20, 2014). Upon Googling the events I learned that this year’s Asheville, N.C., festival has yet to take place. I was surprised that was not mentioned in the article. I was also surprised that the Baltimore connection to Asheville was not mentioned. The 2014 HardLox Jewish Food and Heritage Festival will be held Oct. 19 in downtown Asheville. It is a fundraiser for Beth Ha-Tephila, whose rabbi, Batsheva Meiri, was previously affiliated with Temple Emanuel in Reisterstown.
