The Rose Blumkin Jewish Home’s annual Family Night Dinner is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails on Main Street. Dinner follows at 6 p.m. “This year our theme is a fall harvest festival with beautiful autumn flowers,” said Maggie Conti, RBJH Director of Activities and Outreach Programs. “Guest dining will be set up everywhere on Main Street, with tables in the Schrager Café, the Husker Lounge as well as in the Blumkin Home Auditorium. The residents always look forward to these festive meals when they can dress up a bit and enjoy being together with family and friends. It’s a very special time for everyone at the Home, and we invite the community to join us for this harvest celebration.”

Strolling violinist Deborah Greenblatt brings her special brand of soothing background music — classical, Jewish favorites and American standards — to the evening, and Natalie Osborne, RBJH Nurses Manager, will take complimentary family portraits in the Blumkin Home Chapel prior to dinner.

The Family Night Dinner menu includes Mushroom Barley Soup, Stuffed Cornish Game Hen, along with Roasted Root Vegetables, Asparagus Spears with Slivered Almonds, and Dutch Apple pie. The cost is $17 per adult plate. Children under 12 can enjoy delicious Chicken Tenders for $8 a plate. “Residents’ meals are provided at no charge,” Conti said.

Deadline for reservations is Nov. 8. For more information, call Maggie Conti at 402.334.6521.
