Mesh Cafe Dec 8, 2015

MESH 2015 dec 8

Report From Captain Stuart Green: 

Shomrei’s MESH Cafe last night provided another hot and nourishing meal to a group of 16 appreciative guests. Chef John Lasiter, assisted by Deanna London, Elliot Lasiter and Ethan Coplan, prepared a memorable meal of fresh salad greens, challah, succulent roasted chicken, savory carrots, rice, and blueberry galette. The meal was preceded by blessings over the Hannukah candles, and guests were later entertained with seasonal songs by the singing group that practices in the shul on Tuesday nights. Guests were given go bags with cookies (courtesy of June Zimmerman) and clementines on their way out. Our crack team of Shomrei servers, dishwashers, and kibitzers included Jill Hamburg Coplan, Jonathan Green, teen helpers Amalia, Elliot, and Ethan, and first timers Faye Lederman and daughter Adi. Thanks also to MSU interns Bonny and Thalia and MESH staffer Rob. All in all, it was a first-rate evening of good food, warm hospitality, and grateful guests.

Chag sameach.
