Dinner and storytelling with June Hersh, author of
 Recipes Remembered, a Celebration of Survival and The Kosher Carnivore 
at CBH,  Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 6:30p.m.

Renowned speaker, June Hersh shares her Jewish journey in writing Recipes Remembered which contains the remarkable stories and authentic recipes of Holocaust survivors. Their stories are universal, proving the power of faith, luck, resilience and strength. Their recipes represent the BEST in cooking from nearly every corner of the globe.  Not just Jewish food, but the traditional dishes that nourished and nurtured generations of Americans for decades.

Indulge in a delicious light buffet supper provided by Herb n’ Spice of Livingston (Glatt Kosher).

Bring your friends to an event you won’t soon forget!

Copies of Recipes Remembered will be available for purchase and June will be available for autographs.

All this (and great company too) for $54. Visit to reserve a spot. Seating is limited. Any questions, email

This will be a special night out! Hope you can join us



At CBH, we don’t care much for fluff or flash, and we’re anything but fancy. But our warm, diverse congregation will feed your soul and welcome you like family. Our services are lively yet deeply spiritual, richly traditional yet refreshingly relevant.

Congregation Beth Hatikvah is located at the intersection of Union, Morris, Somerset, and Essex Counties. We think we're building something special here — a progressive community of committed, engaged people, who come together from different Jewish backgrounds and experiences, different traditions, different races, sexual orientation, you name it — and who care about each other, their heritage, and their world.  More about CBH...


Rabbi Hannah Orden became our Spiritual Leader on August 1, 2014. The Congregation welcomed her with a series of spiritual, and fun, programming over the course of the weekend. 

Rabbi Orden has been the rabbi for Temple B’nai Israel in Laconia, New Hampshire since 2009.  She also serves as adjunct faculty for Hebrew College in Newton, Massachusetts where she earned her Rabbinic Ordination and Master of Arts in Jewish Studies in June 2010.  She has an extensive background in Jewish education as well as a strong commitment to community building and social action.  She is a published writer, a chaplain for the Elder Service Plan of Boston, and has broad teaching experience both Jewishly and secularly. She is also well-versed in Reconstructionism. 

The entire CBH Community is looking forward to building its future with Rabbi Hannah Orden. Watch for more details coming soon.
