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!

Thanks for the kisses.

The unseasonably warm weather brought out a great big crowd and, thank goodness, because we had a TON of food:  eggplant parmesan, baked ziti, mac and cheese, broccoli, and and assortment of green beans (sesame green beans, green beans with baby tomatoes, and garlicy green beans), plus cake for dessert. And just in case all of that wasn't quite enough, we gave out chocolate kisses. Please join us in March.

Lots of people waved for kisses.

"I'll have as many kisses as you'll give me."
Thanks for the kisses.

They wore their Valentine's Day colors.

Even big, burly guys love a kiss.

We're honored!

Today, Elijah's Table received a donation from the Exchange Club of Salem in support of our free meals program.  It was a huge honor for us to receive this donation, which will be shared by Etz Hayim Synagogue and the Derry Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration and used to support our joint meals program.  And we are honored every month when you choose to have dinner with us.  Remember: the church generally serves its Elijah's Table dinner on the second Sunday of the month, and the synagogue generally serves dinner on the third Sunday of the month.  Please regularly check the list of free meals, on the right-hand side of this page.

See you soon!

And many thanks to the Exchange Club.
