First Friday Potluck for Everyone

Check our weekly enews for a signup genius link or call the Oseh office: 301-498-5151 to RSVP; last minute dropins and guests are welcome. All our potlucks are dairy.  Suggested dishes include macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs, salads, tuna casserole, cheese or veggie lasagna, bean stew, rice dishes, curries and more. Don’t have time to cook? Bring a challah, hit the grocery salad bar or buy another wonderful premade option with a kosher mark.  If you pick up a ready-made item, please check the ingredients list or ask about meat products.

You can ’t use the kitchen to heat your item but we do have a microwave behind the school office.  Please also bring a serving spoon or knife to serve your dish.  If possible, list the ingredients in your dish so those with allergies are aware.  You may not use any nut products.
