Come join us as we celebrate the resettlement of the Syrian refugee family, the Aldabaans.   HANA (The Hartford Area Neighbors’ Alliance), which includes members of First Church of Christ (FCC), Simsbury, along with others from neighboring churches and a West Hartford community group have been assisting this family of 7 over the last 6 months as they become adjusted to making their way in West Hartford, CT, USA.

Adeebah Alnemar, the mother of the five Aldabaan children and wife of Ibrahim, is looking forward to catering this event and giving a short presentation, as well.   Adeebah has been considering a possible career in the catering business and has been taking classes in the local practices and requirements.  The recipes come from her family and years of experience cooking in Syria.  Having sampled Adeebah’s cooking at a small holiday gathering at a home in West Hartford, I can say that you are in for a treat!
