Monica has stated: We keep a Kosher Kitchen so preferred kosher products,

Cheeses; we do kosher Cabot or Tillamook which is a vegetarian based. If meals are made please use kosher products. No food allergies in the kosher sense but since I am aware not everyone keeps kosher my husband is deadly allergic to shellfish. We mix milk and meat. We are very strict with only eating cheese without animal rennet though. We make Pasta, Spaghetti, lasagna, Mac & cheese, etc. Mostly any chips that have Kosher Hedgmark. Veggies, Broccoli, squash, carrots, cucumbers, Fruit pineapple, banana, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, mangoes, etc.  Tea, water, Juice, no soda.

Tough Mudder Sept 21-22

Description

Tough Mudder is more than a mud run – it’s an epic teamwork experience. Lace up to break free from the everyday and show your weekend who’s boss. No timing chips or first-place medals here – just an un-timed challenge that’ll show you what you’re made of and teach you what teamwork is all about.

Looking for a challenge? Tackle 10 miles and 20+ obstacles with the crushable classic, Tough Mudder Full. Looking for a fun-filled teamwork experience that lets your unicorn flag fly? Crush 5 wild miles and 13 obstacles with Tough Mudder Half. Either way, you’ll finish soaked, tired, and grinning like a madmudder.

“Rabbi Schiller looks at this week’s Torah portion, Deut 15, and the Sh’meitah / Sabbatical Year, and what God says to us about Justice, Mercy, Generosity and Helping the Poor, focusing ultimately on Y’Shua and becoming like Him, who though rich, became poor for our sakes, that through His poverty, we might become rich.”
