Third Annual Community Model Passover Seder
and other March news
Culturally-traditional events can be challenging to individuals with special needs. Our goal for bringing a model Seder to our community is for participants to review the progression of the Seder service and meal, but at their pace. The story of Passover is shared with a special Haggadah prayer book produced by Gateways. A kosher meal will be served so everyone can dine together, but with the event taking place prior to Passover, the meal is not kosher for Passover. For some of our participants, this will be the only Seder they attend, for others they will be ready to do it all over again with friends and family. JOIN US!
WHEN: Sunday, March 25, 2018
TIME: 11:30AM – 1:30PM
