On November 15, 2004 the Associated Press reported, "representatives of more than 14 New Jersey groups, all part of the state's Stamp Out Hate Coalition, will hold a pre-Thanksgiving dinner in the Convent Station section of Morris Township. The celebration is designed to transcend religious and cultural boundaries, particularly now, when society and the world appear deeply divided over issues of faith, said Allyson Gall, executive director of the American Jewish Committee's New Jersey Chapter... Participants will each read a few lines from 'America's Table,' a book the Jewish committee put out shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks that profiles ordinary people whose struggles and successes link them as Americans."
