FROM THE SHABBAT TABLE OF BETSY & GEORGE HESS

August 7th, 2012

Dinner date: 3 August 3, 2012

Guests: Elaine and Sol Snyder and 2 other couples who do not yet belong to Beth Am.

Analogy: Shabbat is a time to reflect on our Judaism and share our blessings.

Recipe: Corn salad- fresh corn cooked and off the cob with basil, tomatoes from our garden mixed with olive oil and vinegar dressing.

Story: We all enjoyed sharing Shabbat rituals, lighting the candles, blessing the challah and the wine and toasting our friendships. We talked of our families, our bond with Beth Am and its future and shared “smaltimore” anecdotes.
