Virtual Opportunities for Prayer

“When you pray, pray in the synagogue of your city; if you are unable to pray in the synagogue, pray in your field; if you are unable to pray in your field, pray in your home; if you are unable to pray in your home, pray on your couch; and, if you are unable to pray on your couch, meditate in your heart.” Midrash Tehillim

A Family Affair (Elementary School Family Seder)

Saturday, March 27, 5:00 pm

Rabbi Rebecca Rosenthal and Jeremy Sipe will lead families with kids in grades K-6 for a seder where we will sing, celebrate, and hit all the seder highlights. We will have about an hour long seder, and then we will let you go to eat dinner with your household or other friends over zoom. Who will find the afikomen? Can we find the youngest child to ask the four questions, even over Zoom? Why is this night different from all other nights? Find out all this and more as we celebrate Passover at a seder unlike any other.
