The Borscht Belt Delicatessen, located at 2124 South Eagle Road in Newtown, will provide on-site and off-premise catering for both congregants of Shir Ami Synagogue, located at 101 Richboro Newtown Road in Newtown, as well as individuals and businesses within the region.
The two institutions have joined forces just in time for the Jewish high holidays which fall on Sept. 15 – 17 (Rosh Hashanah) and Sept. 24 – 25 (Yom Kippur). The Borscht Belt’s Chef/partner Nick Liberato said kosher style will be observed on the premises.
All other items will be prepared in The Borscht Belt’s Newtown kitchen. The business can accommodate groups of up to 4,000 people, and catering orders can be dropped off via a refrigerated van to up to a 30-mile radius of Newtown.
Both Liberato and business partner Mike Dalewitz are members of the Shir Ami congregation, and the two partners were first introduced there, “so it seemed only fitting to expand our offerings to our friends and family at the synagogue,” they said.
In addition, a portion of all catering profits will go to support Shir Ami programs.
“We welcome The Borscht Belt into our kitchen with open arms, and our congregation is absolutely kvelling, said Phil Nordlinger, executive director of Shir Ami.
