Erev Pesach
Friday, March 30: There will be no services at Temple Israel.
*Please note that this is a change from previous communications.*

​Since so many in our community will be hosting or attending a first-night Seder on Friday, March 30, we will not hold a Shabbat service at Temple Israel that evening.

​However, because it is a mitzvah to remember our departed loved ones at Pesach, the clergy are creating a sheet with readings and the mourners’ Kaddish that we encourage you to use at your Seder. It will be available on our website the week before Passover, or call the office for a copy.

Passover Family Seder

IT’S A PLAY-DOH PASSOVER! Who says you can’t bring toys to the table??!! Join us as we retell the Passover story by using our hands and our creativity to build, color and squish our way through the desert to freedom!

Dinner will include matzah ball soup, roast brisket, potato kugel, salad, chocolate-dipped macaroons for dessert, and all the traditional favorites such as charoset, gefilte fish and, of course, lots of matzah. 

Reservations are required! Your payment is your reservation. To reserve your seat at the table, your RSVP must be made by Friday, March 23. Cost of the dinner is $27 for adults, $14 for children ages 6-12, and no charge for children ages five and under. After March 23, the cost of the dinner increases to: $37 for adults, $24 for children 6-12.​​
