Temple Beth Tikvah’s Passover Seder is an inter-generational Seder with music and song, games for all ages, a taste of the Seder plate and a delicious buffet dinner. The meal offers all the tastes of Passover — hard-boiled eggs, haroset, matzah ball soup, horseradish and the Rabbi’s homemade gefilte fish. Dinner buffet includes salmon, chicken or a vegetarian entrée. Ceremonial wine will be served at the table. But those wanting a regular wine can purchase it at the Seder or you are welcome to bring your own bottle for a $15 fee charged by the venue.

Rabbi Hershenson will lead our annual Passover Seder on the second night of Passover, Saturday, April 20th. The Seder is open to members and their invited guests. Doors open at 5:00 pm, and the Seder begins promptly at 5:45 pm.

Reservations are now closed; as we needed to provide a final count to the caterer.

The Seder, which means “order” in Hebrew, is a lively tradition based on the Biblical verse commanding Jews to retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt. Families and friends gather to celebrate with special blessings, songs and rituals. Seder customs include drinking four cups of wine and eating matzah and other symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate. Jews perform the Seder in much the same way all over the world.
