We are coordinating the community dinner to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

We would like to invite everyone to participate and, if possible, bring a dish to share at our potluck meal. If you cannot bring something to the meal, please come anyway.  

For the evening potluck, here are some suggestions:  challah, honey, apples, pomegranate, tsimmis, hot potato dish such as potato kugel, salads, vegetarian or fish main dishes, desserts (especially honey cake, teiglach…), juice, …

For the luncheon, here are some suggestions: egg salad, hummus, pita, smoked salmon, bagels, and cream cheese. 

Please email the AJC at to let me know if you are able to attend, if you will be bringing a dish to the potluck dinner, and what you will be bringing.  We can also suggest a dish if you are not sure what to bring.

There is only one small oven and stove and one refrigerator, so it is preferable to bring food that does not require re-heating.

Finally, if you are able to help with setting up the room or cleaning up after the dinner, please let us know as soon as possible.

The Havura looks forward to this celebration and these Yom Tov meals together; please come!

Thank you, and I hope to see you there! 

Nathan Butt and Elizabeth-Anne Malischewski
