Upcoming Events

Sell Your Chametz, online by 12:00pm on Sunday, April 21 or in-person at 8:00am on Monday, April 22. As you know, we are not allowed to benefit from owning chametz during Pesach. Therefore, it is customary to sell it, and then repurchase it after the end of Pesach. It is our honor and responsibility to be your agents for this sale. Sell your chametz here.

Shacharit & Fast of the Firstborn Siyyum, Monday, April 22, 8:00am. The Fast of the Firstborn (Ta’anit Bechorim) commemorates the horrific tenth plague that God inflicted on Pharaoh and the Egyptian people. In recognition of this moment, firstborn Jews fast on Erev Pesach. As this is a minor fast, there is a widely practiced exemption: Judaism allows anyone who attends a religious feast to forego fasting. It is customary to hold a celebratory meal on the completion of study of a piece of text, called a siyyum (conclusion). Whether you are a firstborn relieving yourself from the pre-Pesach fast, or anyone else simply looking to learn a little, come join us for the siyyum. After the siyyum, we will celebrate with a light breakfast.

Setting Your Seder Table

Setting the table is a great job for kids, but they can do more than just putting out plates and forks! Click here to see Education Director Debra Beland Ackerman's ideas that kids can use to create a table that invites conversation and adds to the experience of the seder.

Maggid Paper Bag Dramatics

Hand over the reins to your kids and charge them with staging the maggid (the story of the Exodus). The beauty of paper bag dramatics is that you fill a bag with props found around the house, so no need to hit the store (click here for a "shopping list" to get you started). Then it's time for the performance. We've got a great script you can use or your kids can write their own. Be sure to encourage them to cast actors of all ages, including those who can't read yet (they can act things out while someone else narrates). And this is another great activity for tables in multiple places-just be sure to share the plan with everyone ahead of time.
