Mesh Cafe Nov 28, 2017

meshFrom Captain Stuart Green

Although your MESH captain forgot to take a photo of the proceedings last night, he can attest that 19 guests attended the Shomrei MESH Cafe on a brisk fall evening, and were very well taken care of.

Carolyn Lack and Barbara Lesser prepared a nourishing meal of deviled eggs and crudite; vegetarian chili with squash, bulgur, corn, and beans; and, for dessert, pumpkin cake and ice cream. Rachel Kanter baked homemade muffins for takeaway goodie bags. We had a small, but highly efficient, crew on hand to help serve and clean up: Shomrei teen Amalia; Montclair Jewish Workshop students Katie, Flora, and Sarah along with organizer Malia Schweger; and MESH staff Adrienne and Joe. Rabbi Greenstein also made an appearance and offered greetings of the season to our guests.

We need you and you need us to help spread the joy of doing this wonderful mitzvah.
