Join us for our 20th Annual Wine & Cheese Gala, at an elegant new event space, celebrating Rabbi Leban and two decades of TJE outreach and inspiration for Jewish Denver and beyond.

We will also be toasting two Gala-Couples at the event:Jay and Stephanie Kamlet & Joel and Tiffany Appel:

Jay and Stephanie were introduced after a fateful encounter at Wine & Cheese 2011. Rabbi Leban married them in 2014, and Jay served as the Chairman of the TJE Board of Directors for many years, until passing the role to Adam Moskowitz in 2021.

Joel and Tiffany began dating after our 2012 Gala. Joel served as a judge on the Dessert Challenge panel, and Tiffany was on the winning team. They have generously underwritten the annual Wine & Cheese Galas for most of the event’s twenty year history.

This year we’re proud to welcome special guest chef Chanie Apfelbaum, author of Millenial Kosher and popular foodie blogger @BusyinBrooklyn.

Every week as we count down to the 20th Annual Wine & Cheese Gala, we’re sharing these fun #ThrowbackThursday galleries from previous years! Check them out below and feel free to share.
