Beth David’s Sentimental Shabbat


Since the outpouring of Valentine's Day sentiment falls this year on Shabbat, Westminster's Temple Beth David intends to combine the two with a special sisterhood-led service that follows a dinner featuring recipes by food writer Sharon Boorstin.

Boorstin will also speak about "Memories to Nosh On," how food and celebrations are staple ingredients in building bonds among friends and families.

Dinner will include soup, chicken, stuffing, vegetables, dessert and wine. The menu and stories are excerpted from Boorstin's book, "Let Us Eat Cake: Adventures in Food and Friendship" (Regan Books, 2002), which features autobiographical stories, such as the outcome of the "husband-catcher cake," and celebrity vignettes such as Wolfgang Puck's crispy matzah.

Boorstin was featured in November at the Jewish Community Center's book festival. "I was really impressed with her," said Melanie Alkov, religious practices chair of Beth David's sisterhood, who expects about 50 diners.

Dinner costs $10 and begins at 6:30 p.m. at 6100 Hefley St., Westminster. Reservations should be made by Feb. 7 by calling (714) 897-0230.
