A Night Of Insight, Freedom, and Joy:
2nd Night Seder at Temple Beth El
More than a folk custom of our people, more than a historical account of the Israelites in Egypt, Passover is an opportunity to touch what is most important in our lives and find ways to move beyond stuck places to greater freedom and joy. With delicious food, challenging and inspiring conversation, meditation, and song, we will take the journey from slavery to freedom as a holy community.
There will be separate and integrated adult and children programming to help both age groups have a meaningful experience. Reservations must be made by March 18th, 2013.
5:30pm - Gathering and Introductions
6:00pm - The Journey Begins - “Secrets of Slavery and Freedom” (There will be appetizers and salad served throughout)
7:30pm - Dinner
8:45pm - “Celebrating Freedom” - Final singing and sharing
It is extremely important that you make your reservation with Fay (firstname.lastname@example.org or 949-362-3999 ext 111) by March 18th, 2013. Pesach demands that we make many pre-purchases. Your attention to this is appreciated.
$54 for Adults, $26 for children ages 5-11, Below age 5 are free.
Menu choices: Brisket, Chicken, Salmon and Vegetarian options
Need a Seder for 1st Night? Want to share yours? Need a Host? Want to Host? If you would like to host one or more members of our Temple Beth El extended family who do not have anyone locally with whom to share Passover seder on the first night, please call the Temple. Likewise, if you don’t have a place to attend seder and would like to join others from your Temple Beth El family, please also let us know. We will work to match everyone up and ensure that “all who are hungry” have a place to come, eat, schmooze, and enjoy the mitzvah of the Seder meal as it was intended to be enjoyed: together.
