We are so pleased to share that our event this year will be held at Congregation Ner Tamid, a Conservative synagogue. As you may know. many Jews abide by dietary rules called kashrut. They eat only kosher food, do not mix meat with dairy foods, and use separate plates and silverware for meat and dairy. Since Congregation Ner Tamid keeps a kosher kitchen, we cannot bring any non-kosher food into the synagogue. Instead, the lunch for our event will consist of 3 delicious vegetarian salads, which everyone can enjoy. This year, we are blessed to learn about Catholicism and Judaism not only from our speakers, but also through the meal we share together.

The salads are:

Cobb – Mixed greens, tomato, avocado, crumbled blue cheese, hard-boiled egg, and ranch dressing.

Southwestern – Mixed greens, sweet corn, jicama, carrots, red onion, tortilla strips and spicy BBQ dressing.

Harvest - Organic greens, dried cranberries, apples, carrots, walnuts, goat cheese crumbles and apple cider vinaigrette.

Janèt Sullivan Whitaker

When I was a little girl, I started making music in church. It was something my family did, and was as natural to us as breathing. All these decades later, I am still at it. But my childlike idea of “church” has expanded to far exceed what I, in my innocence, could have imagined.  The world has changed, and continues to change – not always for the better.  In this day, I try to make music that speaks of hope and promise.  When I sing, I do so in companionship with people of faith – as well as with people who struggle and search. People who are disconnected, angry, or jaded. People who are hurting. All of God’s beloved.

My hope is to keep doing what I did as a child: make music. With God’s help, I hope the songs I write and sing will be a sincere sharing of the wonderful joy, hope, and beauty that God desires for us all.
