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!

"You folks are so nice!"

While bringing a couple some coffee, the woman said, "You folks are so nice here."  But tonight was a series of sweet acts by everyone.  From Orianna's home-made cupcakes to Karen's home-made heart-shaped cookies, to the guy who won the teddy bear prize and gave it to the young boy celebrating his birthday, to Frank handing out chocolate kisses and giving the stuffed elephant he won to one of our young volunteers. It's a blessing to participate in an event that inspires such moments of kindness.  I hope you'll join us next month.  Dinner at the Church of the Transfiguration will be on March 8; Dinner at Etz Hayim Synagogue will be on March 23.  See you then.

A Poem For Valentine's Day.

Kisses are red,
Kisses are sweet,
Come to Elijah's Table on Sunday,
and have good things to eat!
