9-11 Memorial Dinner - @ the New Shul

The New Shul commemorated the 8th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks with a memorial service that included reading of the kaddash (the Jewish memorial prayer for the dead), members speaking about their own personal experiences, singing of prayers as well as a Oneg Shabbat dinner entitled "Shtelt Shabbat" Although a somber day for us all as both New Yorkers and Americans coming together as a community to pray, talk, and eat was a huge comfort - at least it was for me, a non religious jewish New Yorker who finds 9-11 a day that I crave the comfort of community.

And as caterers we have the absolute privilege of
bringing joy and comfort to folks in both happy and sad times
via the food that we cook and serve.
