Under the Jerusalem Stars Themed Retirement Party

On Saturday June 4, Catering by Seasons was honored to cater a night of dinner and dancing celebrating Rabbi Jack Luxemburg’s 35 years of service as spiritual leader of Temple Beth Ami. The evening, Under the Jerusalem Stars, featured food, décor and entertainment inspired by Rabbi Luxemburgs second favorite city, Jerusalem!

Appetizers included a Hummus Station with ground beef and chopped egg, tahini and hummus as well as passed Hors D’oeuvres of Stuffed Dates, Mini Knishes, Lamb Meatball Skewers and Mini Short Rib Tacos.

Guests were wowed by the transformation of the Kinneret Social Hall where stars twinkled from above, pictures of Jerusalem at night were projected onto the walls and the centerpieces created by DaVinci’s Florists incorporated fresh produce including Jaffa oranges, artichokes, asparagus spears and radishes.

The Dinner Stations were set up amongst produce stalls designed to replicate the shuk. The nearly 400 guests dined on Stuffed Salmon, Mediterranean Mezze, Chicken and Steak Kabobs, Grilled Vegetable Tarts and a traditional Falafel Bar.

The food was exceptional from start to finish, and many, many guests provided immediate and vocal feedback about how delicious everything was.

I cannot say enough good things about Glynis Keith and the team at Catering By Seasons.

As mother of the bride, I was totally impressed by the professional, helpful and curteous service Catering By Seasons provided at my daughter's wedding.
