Passover Community Seder

Friday, April 10, 5:30 p.m.

Passover is just around the corner and so is our Community Seder! Please join us for this always joyous occasion! Space and seating are limited, so you must RSVP to with the number of people in your party. Preference will be given to temple members.

Each family should bring two dishes (main dish, salad, vegetable, or dessert) to share that will serve eight to ten people. The dishes should ideally not require heating as we are limited to one small microwave / convection oven.

While our kitchen is not strictly kosher for Passover, we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  • No pork or shellfish
  • No leavened bread products with flour such as bread, crackers, pasta, cakes, pies, pizza, or cookie crumb crusts
  • Legumes and rice are fine, per current Reform practice

The cost for attendance is:

  • Members: $3 per person or $10 per family
  • Non-members: $5 per person or $18 per family

We hope to see you there!
