Bridge with Children & Families

5.0 rating
August 19, 2019

We at St. James Episcopal Church encouraged our families with children to attend, and they did! Mustafa was his usual wonderful self, the young men who came with him were personable, articulate, and at times, heart-breaking with their stories. Of course, the food was superb. To sum up, one of the children said to her parents, she wished they could have a “bridge” every night! We will do it again!!

Syrian Family recently moved from Iraq

It was amazing to hear stories from Syria and Iraq straight from the source. I was tired of the constant drone of American new sources and was so happy to connect with this family. They are my neighbors now and anything society can do to connect with more neighbors is amazing. We had such amazing food that my mother was surprised when she woke up with no stomach problems at all. What a lovely way to spend a Saturday evening instead of going to a restaurant etc.

An unforgettable, worldview-changing evening

Of course the authentic Somalia food was delicious (multiple courses, dessert, hot and cold drinks, and we got to take gobs of leftovers home with us). But the real magic of the evening was listening – while we were speechless- to Mustafa talk about his life in a refugee camp, and his impossible-to-imagine journey to America. Our party asked 100 questions and genuine conversation and friendship flowed. I brought my 10-year-old daughter and I’m so glad she was there to listen and learn as well. 100% would recommend this to anyone.

Syrian Family Dinner

I can’t remember the last time I ate this well: and they cooked vegetarian dishes for two of us who did not eat meat! This family is so joyful, generous, and fun, and my friends and I were so blessed by them. Book a dinner if you want a full belly & an evening full of laughter. Hoping to do it again soon.

Our Syrian evening

We were kindly hosted by Rema and her family from Syria Saturday evening. She, and the children, presented a beautiful table of delicious Syrian food for us. We had a great time and they were willing to share their lives with us. We thank them, and Bridge, for this opportunity. (Especially thankful for the extra effort on their part, as our original plan had to be changed due to illness.) What a wonderful way to get to know other cultures.
