Passover Community Seder (IP) 
Thursday, April 6, 6-8 p.m. 

While we might not be crossing borders, we are inviting you to make the short trek to us for an all-ages Community Passover Seder. As we re-enact our own leaving of Egypt with all of the ritual foods and songs, we also ask those attending to bring that special item you’d pack in your go-bag, that one meaningful item that would fit in the suitcase the size of a carry-on suitcase if you had to leave within a moment’s notice. We will share with each other why these particular items have meaning for us and enjoy a delicious meal, including looking for the afikomen after dinner. 

We look forward to learning something new about our many community members, young and old, as we explore what it means to leave Egypt ourselves. We do ask all those who are hungry and plan to eat with us to sign up by April 3. 

Passover Patrons $70 | Adults $40

During Passover, we are instructed in the Book of Exodus to eat Matzah, unleavened bread, and not to eat chametz, foods that are leavened, as a way of re-enacting our leaving Egypt. From April 4 -12, we are asking that you refrain from bringing the following foods into the Temple Israel building: bread, rolls, crackers, flour tortillas, cookies, cakes, pasta, cereals, soy sauce, or food that has been breaded.

Thank you and wishing you a joyous Festival of Matzah. Happy Passover! Chag Sameach!
