6:45 pm

Presented by NHS Mens' Club

NHS Men's Club presented our annual Kosher Chinese Dinner on Thursday evening, December 24th. Rabbi George Barnard, our Rabbi Emeritus, presided over the volunteer chefs to provide a delicious Asian buffet feast.

At 6:30 pm, members and guests gathered in the Chapel for a short Maariv service. At 7 pm, we were welcomed into the Zorndorf Social Hall by Mens' Club past president Barry Wolfson. He explained that the meal would be served in various courses, so we began with chicken soup, into which one could add wontons, noodles and/or smoked meat (turkey).

For the next course, Laurel Wolfson demonstrated how to make a lettuce wrap with ground beef and peanuts. Finally, we were able to help ourselves to the main courses: chicken broccoli, garlic braised beef, tofu and veggies, garlic spinach and white rice.

After a dessert of fresh pineapple and cookies, attendees had a choice of playing cards and board games or watching "Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi", projected on a screen in the other half of the social hall.
