VERY DISAPPOINTING!! Latke Mania 2022 is Cancelled

Our supplier of frozen shredded potatoes (cases of six 3-lb bags) notified us last week that this commercial product was discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available. We contacted other suppliers and no commercially frozen or fresh shredded potatoes were available. (And NO, we are not grating our own potatoes, as we use about 30 pounds of potatoes each day for the 3 weeks of Latke Mania!!). Unfortunately, Latke Mania 2022 is cancelled.

The deli will remain open for dining in and take out with the regular menu Tuesdays to Fridays from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm until Friday, December 23rd.

The deli will close on Friday, December 23rd for the holiday season and will reopen with the full menu for dining in and take out on Tuesday, January 10th.

Topic: Jonathan Dunsky Book Presentation of “Ten Years Gone”

Ten Years Gone Image

On the dusty streets of post-war Tel Aviv, a crafty killer roams free…

Israel, 1949 – Private detective Adam Lapid knows how it feels to lose everything. His whole family died in Auschwitz. He barely survived. Now he spends his nights haunted by nightmares and his days solving cases the police won’t handle.

Hired to find a missing boy, Adam thinks the case is hopeless. But he can’t turn down a mother searching for her only child.

What Adam doesn’t realize is that this case will soon put him in mortal danger. For at the root of the mystery lies a double murder that has stayed unsolved for ten long years.

Adam must untangle a web of lies and betrayal to get to the truth. And he’d better watch his back because some of the suspects are willing to kill to keep their dark secrets buried.

Ten Years Gone, has been included in the Jewish Book Council’s annual book club reading guide for 2022-2023. It is the first of seven novels featuring private detective Adam Lapid.

Any devotees of the detective novel not yet acquainted with Israeli detective Adam Lapid have a veritable feast awaiting them.https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/article-720166
