Report From Captain Lynne Kurzweil:
A few weeks ago, it came to our attention that the Thursday evening MESH Cafe (Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless) was not going to be serving dinner on Christmas Eve. Aileen Grossberg was signed up to prepare a meal for our IHN guests (Interfaith Hospitality Network, temporary housing for homeless families) that night and Aileen graciously offered to expand the meal to include our MESH guests.
Aileen prepared a feast that was so much appreciated by 14 of our MESH regulars, complete with holiday tablecloths and paper goods and sparkling cider! Please note the menu which was displayed on the dinner table.
Helpers that night included Shomrei IHN volunteers Dale Russakoff, the entire Marcus Family including Grandma Curline and down-to-the-wire rescuers Alex Kent and Sam Selesnick, Kenny and Jill Hamburg-Coplan, Nate Perlmuter, Gabe and Noah Slon and Lanny Kurzweil. Special thanks to MESH staffers Adrienne and Bonny who came out on their holiday to help us perform this wonderful mitzvah. The food and the mood was joyous and festive.
Many thanks to all who participated.
Healthy regards and best wishes for a healthy, happy 2016,
