Back by popular demand, The Temple of Israel’s third annual Corned Beef and Pastrami Sandwich Sale will take place 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 14.
For one day only, Wilmingtonians can feast on sandwiches prepared with rye bread straight from Green’s Bakery in Brooklyn. All sandwiches will come with coleslaw, mustard, a Guss’ New York kosher pickle, and a bottle of water, and will be available for eat in or pick up at the Temple of Israel’s Reibman Center, located at 922 Market (Market and 10th, entry on 10th street just south of Market). 
In the past, said organizer Sandy Apple, the sale has been held in the fall. But because of Hurricane Florence, it was postponed until March. A portion of the sales from this year’s sale will go towards ongoing repairs and restoration of the Temple, which experienced damage during the storm. 
“At our last sale we sold over 800 sandwiches,” Apple said. “We decided to take on more with offering both corned beef and pastrami this year, but we’re very excited to do it.”
Apple said the idea from the sale came when several members of the Temple, who had moved to the area from the northeast, were gathered together and pining for a real New York Reuben.
Apple said they were very pleased with the quality of the corned beef the first year of the sale, but that the original meat supplier was not available last year. This time around, Apple and others have spent the last month or so tasting meats from several suppliers, and she said she confident that the supplier they’ve chosen will provide an excellent product.
The Temple has partnered with Angie’s Restaurant to slice and weigh the meat the night before the sale, and a group of volunteers will assemble the sandwiches the morning of March 14 to ensure they’re as fresh as possible.
For the first time this year, orders can also be placed for corned beef and pastrami by the pound, as well as loaves of Green’s rye bread and babka, and rugelach by the bag.
Each sandwich is $14 and must be preordered by March 1, on the temple's website. Delivery on March 14 will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for orders of 10 or more sandwiches.
