by Alan Elsner

Overview
What happens with a Jewish couple and a Christian evangelical couple meet for the first time after their children get engaged? Do they even speak the same language? Sparks fly as our well-meaning characters grapple with Interfaith marriage, America's red-blue divide, religion, gender, history, memory, tradition and some very unwelcome surprises.
Description
Ben and Susan Zucker-Feld arrive at the home of Rev. Jack Reed and his wife Virginia. Their children, Jessica and John, have recently become engaged. This is the couples' first meeting. The Reeds are Christian evangelicals who recently moved from Wichita, Kansas to the Washington DC are. The Zucker-Felds are Jewish liberals. The two couples try to bridge the gaps between their two worlds -- but find it difficult to forge a common language. When their children arrive, the Reeds unveil a surprise and the evening spins out of control.
About the author
Alan Elsner had a long career at the top ranks of American and international journalism and a long record of Jewish and pro-Israel advocacy. As State Department and later White House correspondent for Reuters News Agency, Elsner traveled the world with Secretaries of State and on Air Force One. His sharp questioning during the Rwanda genocide forced the United States to change its policy and was later highlighted in the Hollywood movie "Hotel Rwanda." Elsner is an Israeli citizen who was a volunteer during the Yom Kippur War and served in the Israel Defense Forces during the 1982 Lebanon War. As Reuters National Correspondent, Elsner was the agency's chief writer on 9/11/2001 and through the subsequent period. Elsner is the author of two novels and two works of non-fiction. His first book, "Gates of Injustice: The Crisis in America's Prisons," was hailed by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy as a "wake-up call" and welcomed by the political left and right. His first novel, "The Nazi Hunter," was described by Publishers' Weekly as "a gripping debut thriller and a compelling tale." His memoir, "Guarded by Angels" about his father's Holocaust survival in World War II, was published by Yad Vashem. He spearheaded a campaign to build a fitting memorial at the site of the Belzec extermination camp in Poland where his grandparents were murdered by the Nazis. Winner of the Knight International Journalism fellowship, Elsner spent a year in Romania in 2007 teaching journalism to students and professionals and strengthening the values of a free media. He spent six years with J Street as Vice President for Communications and Senior Advisor to the President of the organization.. His latest work is a play The Last Supper.
