Sign-Up Now for Our Annual Seder

Cost: $12.00 for adults, $5.00 for children. A sliding scale is available – please contact Patty Petrie
Our Religious Education team is hosting a Seder for all UUFS members, friends, and guests. As is traditional, the Passover service will be wrapped around the Passover meal. The service generally follows Reform Jewish conventions (it’s in English, for example), but we use a prayer book, written by and for Unitarian Universalists, which emphasizes Passover as a holiday of freedom and self determination.
There are parts of the Seder which are traditionally read by children. If your child would like to read a short portion of the Seder Service (in English), please contact Patty Petrie.
Dinner will be matzoh ball Soup, followed by a buffet serving of meat loaf, Gefilte fish, potatoes, coleslaw, deviled eggs, and lots of Matzoh! Dessert will be macaroons and tea. We will pour grape juice rather than wine. If you are strictly kosher, please talk to Joshua Levy before registering, as some of the food is not strictly kosher.
Contact Joshua or Patty by April 9th at email@example.com.
Spend time with your fellow UUs, learn about the most important Jewish festival, and learn about the roots of Christianity, all in one meal!
Our Caring Team Needs Volunteers!
We provide meals, transportation, emotional support and other services to members and friends in times of need. If you are interested in being part of this great caring network please sign up at the Connections Table in Shephard Hall after services on Sunday. If you need help, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or let Patty Flack or Reverend Nina know.
