Pesach is here! Chag Sameach!
Dear community –
Pesach is around the corner.  So we will keep this email short and sweet - but hopefully filled with good things, like the charoset I hope we will still be making.

  • CHAMETZ - should all be gone by now, but just in case...
  • TZEDAKAH - please give if you have not done so already. This is a vital mitzvah.
  • SERVICES AND GATHERINGS - Wednesday morning, Open House, Sunday morning (Yizkor)
  • SEDER - here are all the resources you'll need
  • PLAYLISTS - here are our ALL-NEW Pesach playlists! Please share widely!
  • SERMON AND TORAH READINGS - Rabbi Silver's Pesach sermon the the Torah readings for Day 1 and 2 of Pesach

Please be well, please be safe, please continue to isolate.  Please let us know quickly if any of you are sick.
Together though apart, we bless the Holy One who has kept us alive and safe and brought us to this sacred time.
Next year at the Jazz Seder!!
