A message from Rabbi Alder...

Like much of Judaism, Passover happens mostly in the home. Surveys show that the Passover Seder is the single most
observed tradition in all of Judaism largely because it is a time for people coming together over good food and good
feelings. This year, due to the pandemic, Passover will only be observed in our homes but we can still get together for
good food and good feelings.

We will be having our traditional Passover Community Seder led by Rabbi Alder and Cantor Yager on the first
evening, Saturday, March 27 at 7:30 pm (with prayer services preceding at 7:00 pm).  On the second evening, Sunday,
March 28 at 6:00 pm
, the Rabbi and Cantor will lead an abbreviated Seder geared for children and their families.
Both seders will be broadcast on our usual Zoom service site.

Study for the First Born will take place on the Thursday morning before Passover and Passover prayer services
will take place on the first two days and the last two concluding days
, including Yizkor on Sunday, April 4 at
11:30 am
. All services will be broadcast on our regular Zoom service site.

A form for selling any chametz (leavened grain) which you may store in your home during Passover is available, as is
a way to give the traditional Passover Tzedakah of Ma’ot Chitim, which we will distribute to help needy fellow Jews to
properly celebrate the holiday.

Best wishes to all for a Chag Kasher Ve’Sameach – a kosher and happy holiday.
