You are invited to bring your family and friends to our annual Passover Pot Luck Seder on Tuesday, March 30 at 6:30 PM. It will be lead by Rabbi Dawn Rose, so it will feature lots of great singing. She has promised that it will be fun, meaningful and exciting. We encourage families to bring their children. Also, we welcome our friends from the community.
Each family is requested to bring candle holders, and two of the following food items – a main dish, a salad or vegetable, and dessert. Please make enough to serve 8 to 10 people. Everyone will want a taste. Please let us know what you plan to bring when you make your reservation. There is a charge for members of $3 per person or $10 per family. The non-member charge is $5 per person or $18 per family.
Because this is a pot luck meal and our food will be prepared in many kitchens, the meal will not be strictly kosher for Passover, by traditional standards. However, please prepare all food according to our Passover guide-lines. We don’t require the use of Passover pots, pans, and dishes but, we do request that you not bring pork, shellfish, or shrimp. Bread, crackers, pasta, cakes, pies, and pizza, with flour or cookie-crumb crusts are not appropriate for our Passover Seder. We follow Ashkenazic rules for what foods to bring so as to be welcoming to all traditions. We ask you not to bring rice, millet, corn and legumes (like peas, beans, etc.).
