If you have a hankering for Jewish deli food but can’t wait for this summer’s Lexington Jewish Food Festival, you’re in luck: TAI on Rye, the pop-up deli at Temple Adath Israel, will be back on Feb. 25.

The deli will serve pastrami, corned beef and several specialty sandwiches, with the pastrami and corned beef made locally at Lynagh’s Irish Pub. This edition of the deli, which has dine-in and take-out options, also will include bowls of chicken noodle soup and homemade potato knishes, one of the most popular offerings at the temple’s food festival.

Additionally, the deli is taking advance orders for chopped liver ($6 for a half-pound container.)

To order, send an email by Feb. 21 to lexjewishfoodfestival@gmail.com; include your name, contact information and the number of containers you’d like. The chopped liver will be available for pickup during deli hours, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The temple is at 124 North Ashland Avenue. It will present the 2018 Lexington Jewish Food Festival on Aug. 26.
