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!

The value of a good "thank you."

Our lovely leader-for-the-day set a joyous and grateful tone for the evening by commenting on the beautiful weather,
noting that tomorrow is the first day of Spring, and
reciting the "Shehecheyanu" before the prayer for bread,
thanking G-d for "giving us life, sustaining us, and enabling us to reach this special day."  

This guy thanked us for a good meal,
and a bag of cookies to take home. 

I thanked these guys for having such great photogenic beards.

These ladies praised our leader-for-the-day for her wise comments and great voice.

And we all must give special thanks to our indispensible volunteers.
