Beit R'fuah Support Group, Potluck (kosher for Passover) and Discussion
Our April meeting will begin with our usual potluck dinner and socializing to be followed by group sharing. For the potluck dinner, please bring healthful kosher-for-Passover* vegetarian dishes or salads and fruit for dessert. (Kashrut information: please note that Beth Am serves food "kosher style," which means no pork or shellfish and we do not serve milk and meat in the same dish, such as meat and cheese lasagna. Thank you for observing in this way.)
Beit R'fuah, House of Healing, welcomes all - Beth Am members or not, Jewish or not - who are coping with mental illness themselves or who provide support for family and friends who are dealing with mental illness. For more information, email Mental Health.
*Since the April meeting will be held during Passover, please try to bring appropriate foods to share. We'll have matzah instead of bread for the motzi and ask that you don't bring pasta, cake or cookies that aren't kosher for Passover. There are many levels of observance in terms of food restrictions. Sephardim, Jews from Spain and the Middle East eat rice, but the Ashkenazim from Eastern Europe do not. Some observers include peas and beans among the foods to avoid during the holiday, while others do not. It is suggested that you bring a written description of ingredients to accompany the dish so diners can choose according to their own practices. Thank you!
