Rabbi Asch will lead this seder filled with songs, stories and, of course, food! Please make your reservations early, space is limited to 110 people including children.  Make your reservations by March 27th. If space is available we will accept reservations until April 1st. We are sorry we are not able to accept any reservations after that date. A donation of $5 a person goes to offset the costs for wine and matzah. Arrive at 5:30 to drop off your dish and get settled. The seder will start promptly at 5:45.

Please bring a dish to share. You may sign up for the potluck here.
