It was great going to Magen David Synagogue today to help prepare for the big Simchat Torah Dinner tomorrow night.
First, we started with great ingredients.
Then all the prep.
The cleaning, slicing, dicing, mixing, laying it all out, and braising.
Then the cooking–stovetop, and oven.
And before you know, it comes out all done and ready for the scrumptious shul dinner to honor the Torahs.
I want to thank all the women and men that helped out today and many other times to prepare.
But especially, I want to call out Naomi Elimelech who coordinates everything and is the brains behind all the delicious and healthy food.
She and her husband, Itzik, who is also the President of the synagogue, are truly wonderful, caring, and giving people and a role model for all of us–and it’s not just the cooking!
B’tayavon everyone and Chag Sameach! 😉
