Temple Anshe Amunim will hold its annual Second Night Passover Seder on Saturday, April 4, 2015. The Seder, which will begin at 5:30 p.m., will be open to all members of the Jewish community and the community at large who would like to experience a Passover service.
The second night Seder expands the Passover celebration from the family setting – the traditional site of the first Seder – to allow the community to celebrate together and invite people from outside the Temple’s membership to enjoy the experience with them.
The Seder will be led by Rabbi Joshua Breindel, assisted by students from the religious school, who will read from the Haggadah (Hebrew for “the telling”) and lead attendees in Passover songs.
Food is an important part of the Passover ritual. Following the service, participants are invited to share a meal, prepared by Temple members and a local caterer. The meal will include chicken soup with matzo balls, gefilte fish, beef brisket, roast turkey, sweet potato and carrot tzimmes, plus assorted desserts. A vegetarian option will be offered. All children in attendance will be invited to hunt for the afikomen and win prizes.
Costs are: $36 for adult members; $42 for other adults; $10 for children ages 10 through 18; and children under 10 free.
Reserve by March 28 by calling the Temple Office at (413) 442-5910 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
