Our community seder for 2012 will take place at Kol Ami on the 7th night of Passover – Friday, April 13th. Although we in the CBY like to think of ourselves as inventive, the Shvi’ee shel Pesach is celebrated in many Jewish communities. In addition to the passing over that gives the holiday its name, we will explore the meaning of a crossing over (or passing through) event – the splitting of the Red Sea (or Sea of Reeds). This momentous march is supposed to have occurred on the seventh day of the journey out of slavery and is the climax of the Exodus from Egypt. It is a story of bravery, faith, and celebration.
As befits a 7th night seder, we will begin PROMPTLY at 7 pm. Therefore, I suggest that you plan to arrive between 6:30 and 6:45 pm to allow for the appropriate amount of pre-seder schmoozing.
The price is $18 for adult members of the Chavurah B’Yachad and $9 for their children ages 6-18. The price for non-members is $30 for adults and $15 for their children ages 6-18. Children under the age of 6 are free. Please RSVP no later than Friday, March 30th. (See the attached form.) I hope you can make it.
