I just wanted to personally thank you for all you did to make the event on Sunday, the smashing success that it was. Your ability to pull all of the different threads of Jewish cuisine and history together into one flowing story is magical to behold in person. The discussion you were able to put together with Lara, Daphna, and Susan was fascinating.

"Thank you so much for helping to arrange for Joan Nathan's appearance at the First Person Festival. Her program was excellent and the audience adored her...I want to be sure she knows how grateful we are that she took time out her busy schedule to come to Philadelphia to join us. I hope she enjoyed being here as much as everyone enjoyed having her."
