This blog is posted by "Elijah's Table," a joint project of the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration (1 Hood Road, Derry, NH) and Etz Hayim Synagogue (1-1/2 Hood Road, Derry, NH), both located on Hood Road in Derry, NH. Twice a month we provide free, family-friendly dinners, which are served in a relaxed atmosphere. There are other organizations in the Derry, New Hampshire area that also offer free and delicious meals to the public. Please see the calendar on the right-hand side of this blog for a list of upcoming meals. And don't forget the offerings of the Sonshine Soup Kitchen (described on the left-hand side of this blog) and The Derry Salvation Army!

Let’s get the word out.

It made me happy to see this article in The Derry News yesterday.

Enjoying a meal with dear friends.

I stopped by Elijah's Table tonight and got to see a few people I had not seen in a while.  Everyone looks great, as did the food:  lasagna, an awesome spinach salad, fresh steamed broccoli and carrots, lots of cake.  The pictures below display one of the things I love about ET:  the warmth of the volunteers and our clients, and the friendship we all feel for each other.  Join us next time.

Happy customer who wisely eats his vegetables.

New pals (the guy doesn't know these women but, in the true spirit of ET, he hopped in for a hug). 


Friends forever.

Planet pal.

Summertime, and the Living is Easy

Bonnie made a picnic tonight for the Elijah's Table customers:  tuna, egg, and pasta salad, pickles and olives, and yummy potatoe chips.  And, of course, there is always dessert at ET.  Join us next time.

Happy, Joyous Carbs!

Breakfast today was awesome, and hopefully the start of an annual tradition.  We had two different kinds of quiche, noodle kugel, HOT CHOCOLATE, French toast with real maple syrup, fruit salad and a whole bunch of other stuff.  Everything was home-made and everything looked super delicious.  Rabbi Levy, Amy Dattner Levy and Linda Cohn-Rosenberg put on a sing-a-long and sang, among other things, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," and "Happy, Joyous Chanukah."  What could be better than carbs, music, and friends?  Join us in January, folks, for another great meal.
