Special Needs Community Model Passover Seder
Hosted by Gesher DIsability Resources (formerly Council For Jews With Special Needs)
Culturally traditional events can be challenging to individuals with special needs. Our goal for bringing this model seder to the community is for our participants to review the progression of the Seder service and meal, but at their pace. The story of Passover is shared, but with a special Haggadah prayer book produced by Gateways. A kosher meal is 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.
