Rotating shabbat dinners!

GOT A DATE.  GOT A TIME.  LET'S MAKE IT A POTLUCK

So, let's make it a potluck.  I'll provide the main course which will be enough salmon for all, challah, and kidush grape juice or wine. Probably will BBQ salmon, but that will be weather permitting.

When you confirm your RSVP, check the number attending (some may not be able to make it to Agoura Hills) and say if you'd like to bring...

1. A Carb Side Dish (rice, roasted potatoes, type of thing)

2. A Vegetable Side Dish (asparagus, artichoke, broccoli, type thing)

3. A Desert... no explanation needed.

4. Dipping Salads

5. Drinks

6. Paper Cups and Cuttlery

I'll take a look at who's bringing what and make any adjustments as needed

Look forward to meeting everyone... adult and children.

    Shavuah Tov (Have A Good Week),
    It was great to meet you folks last night. Shouldn't have been surprised that a bunch of parents... Jewish parents no less, would all contribute so freely n generously. A pleasure to meet everyone, and I look forward to participating in more of our own special brand of family events. Take Care,

    Ok, I just finished preparing Moroccan carrots, a dish that I think should work nicely with salmon. See you all tonite:-))

    Phil,
    There will be so many there, it might help to have nametags. Also, some "benchers" / prayer sheets, if you have access to any.

    Wow. Amazing response. Thank you!

    I went through the grub people will contribute, and here's my suggestion. Here are the offerings I would leave the same...

    Mel Gevisser – drinks
    Natalie – drinks
    Suzanne – a large salad
    Shari Lewis – pita and humus
    David G – vege side dish
    Robert – Cous cous dish
    Cheryl Landsberg – desert

    Here's what I would request clive and corey bring...

    Clive - could you bring some kind of desert? (Cheryl is also bringing desert)

    Corey - could you bring plastic cuttlery, cups, and plates? (That would be for about 30 to be safe)

    Clive and Corey, let me know if you're ok with that change. Everyone else, let me know if there are any mistakes, misunderstandings, changes...

    Look forward to celebrating shabbat with a bunch of generous folk.

    Take care,

    Phil

      Perfectly ok - I'll do a Trader Joes run - a couple of cheesecakes? - anything else you can think of Phil?

      January 11, 2013

  • Cory

    Hi Phil, I'll bring the supplies! See you later.

    January 11, 2013

  • Clive

    Phil - seems like a lot of people - hope you anticipated the headcount? Want to put out a more specific list of needs now with a 25+ headcount? Just wondering...

      Our Shabbat dinner became a shabbat Parte. That works.

      January 10, 2013

    • Phil J C.

      I'm going through the list right now to figure out the contributions and see if any should be rearranged.

      1 · January 10, 2013

  • Cory

    Phil. What can I bring? Challah?

    January 8, 2013

  • shari L.

    I have 6 year old twin girls. Is there anything in particular u would like me to bring? Hummus and pitA or juice? Shari

    January 8, 2013

    • Phil J C.

      Humus and Pita sounds very good...

      January 8, 2013

  • David G.

    Will bring my 11 year old daughter. Can bring a vegetarian side dish. David

    I have to be at the airport at 745 to pick up my cousin :( Phil, can you call me? I'd love to stop by at the beginning and at least meet everyone. I feel so horrible about having to miss this first one, and my son was very much looking forward to it. You can reach me at[masked]-8535. Press 1 for Stephanie.

      I second that motion. It looks like a good crew from the comments.

  • Suzanne

    I think I would just make a point of heading out early that day if it is a Shabbat in the valley, especially Agoura Hills.

    December 6, 2012

  • Elizabeth C.

    Agoura definitely works for me as I live in Ventura.

    December 6, 2012

  • Phil J C.

    If y'all don't mind driving, I wouldn't mind hosting on Jan 11th. I live in Agoura Hills just off Kanan road. If it's too far, then go for another location.

    Let me know what y'all think... If I get enough positive, I'll do it.

    December 6, 2012

  • Michele E.

    What part of town do you live in Stephanie? Hey Phil! I'll be happy to drive to your place.

    December 6, 2012

  • Stephanie

    How about planning the first one after the break? January 11th?

    December 6, 2012

  • Stephanie

    So glad this can happen! I'm in

    1 · December 6, 2012

  • Phil J C.

    Well, Michele, it looks like you've started a 'thing' here with your comment. Uh, I think we need a rotating date for these rotating Shabbats. I suggest something like first then second Friday evening of every month alternately. At least for a couple months. That way you don't loose some just because of custody plan.

    Anywho, nice work M!

    Phil

    2 · December 6, 2012

  • Phil J C.

    I personally wouldn't mind hosting a shabbat dinner (in Agoura Hills), but since I don't drive on Shabbat, it would be a bit tough to go to others' shabbat dinners.

    1 · December 5, 2012

  • Michele E.

    Great idea! I'm in Calabasas, is anyone else in the Valley who wants to join me?
