Dinner date: 18 March 2012
Guests: Betty & Dan Chemers, Kathy & Sandy Shapiro, Amy Davidoff & Steve Gore, Janet Horn & Alan Yuspeh, Joyce Leviton
Analogy: Shabbat is a time for reflection and connection.
Recipe: Salade Nicoise was a hit – so many healthy and colorful items to choose from, on just one platter.
Story: Most of the guests didn’t know each other, even the five people who sit within a few rows of each other at Beth Am. All the guests quickly found intriguing things about each other and amazing things in common. Towards the end of the meal, everyone participated in a discussion about ethics and evolution, prompted by an article about Dr. Ben Carson. We all had good things to say about Beth Am and were grateful that the “613+” dinner initiative brought us together.
