​​OUR CELEBRATORY MEALS

Everyone is invited to our communal potlucks in the new UUCP lobby. Plates, cups and utensils will be provided. Members and guests can bring vegan, dairy or fish dishes of 6 or more servings to share with the community, according to their last names as detailed below. A list of ingredients (or even the recipe) will be appreciated, especially by those who have dietary restrictions or allergies. Even if you are unable to bring a dish, you can feed your appetite, soul and curiosity. There's always room for everyone, and you can meet friends, new people, and speak with Rabbi Marsha
