On Bagels: B’nai B’rith Youth Organization Bagel Benefit


Over 17,000 fresh St. Viateur Montreal bagels are arriving in Edmonton this week via courier in a tasty effort to raise funds for the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization in Edmonton.

Edmonton’s Tamara Vineberg, a self-described “Montreal bagel fairy,” is the organizer behind the BBYO Bagels for Breakfast fundraising program, which will see 3,710 pounds of fresh Montreal bagels delivered to the Jewish Federation of Edmonton! (If you’re counting at home, that astounding order weighs more than the average car.)

On the Tuesday, June 8, 2021 edition of Traffic Jams, Lisa Wilton spoke with Vineberg about her love for the tasty Montreal export, what it’s like to “babysit” thousands of bagels, and how she hopes this creative fundraising endeavour will benefit a local youth organization.
