This year we will offer two very different opportunities to best meet your needs. Join us for one or both!
45 Minutes through a Virtual Desert: A Family Friendly Seder
Sunday, March 28th, 5:00 p.m.
There are so many fun and engaging ways to make meaningful and beautiful holiday memories with your children. We would love for you to welcome us into your home to join you!
Rabbi Josh and Cantor Hanan will lead this family oriented event filled with songs and stories. Everyone is invited but this time period will be focused on families with children. Enough time to tell the story, not too much time to lose their focus!
Join us for 45 Minutes through a Virtual desert
Traditional Congregational Seder
Sunday, March 28th, 6:00 p.m.
Together we’ll celebrate the second night of Passover! Rabbi Dorsch and Cantor Leberman will lead a congregational Passover Seder. We’ll be inspired by songs, games, and a variety of surprises as we make our way through the traditional Seder.
We will laugh, we will cry, and we will drink (at least four cups of wine, BYOB), as we celebrate one of the most ancient of Judaism’s traditions, in an innovative, contemporary and modern way.
We will be using the following Haggadot (PDF versions):

Additional Information for Seder Participants
According to legend, when the Conservative Movement was debating as to whether or not women could be ordained as Rabbis, someone shouted that “Women belong on the Bimah as much as an orange belongs on a Seder plate.” That is why many people put oranges on their Seder plate, to remind everyone of the struggle that women have had, and continue to have, for equality.
All participants will be asked/are encouraged to add another unique item to their Seder Plate. The item can either explain another part of the Passover Story, or symbolize a journey from servitude and persecution to redemption in some way. Everyone will be given an opportunity present and explain their item.
Participants should try to have:
- Wine or grape juice – enough for four cups, plus a little for the 10 plagues.
- Matzah – a box should more than do it for the ritual activities. If you want more of it, that’s on you. (It will certainly help with the TP shortage.)
- Bowl with pitcher or cup to wash hands (and a towel)
Seder Plate Items You Should Have (if possible)
- Parsley and/or boiled potato and salt water
- Maror (horseradish – jarred or preferably a grated root)
- (If you prefer to order a ready-made and fully stocked Seder Plate from OC Kosher)
- Parts of the Seder plate that are for SHOW: Shank bone, Roasted Egg
- An additional item to help us interpret the story of Passover: Orange, Purel, etc.
- Other ritual items that we will SHOW: Elijah cup, Miriam cup
- Cashews to throw at the screen to get someone’s attention
- Toys and Props to tell the Story: Jumping frog toys, bugs, animals, plague masks, etc. (all available on AMAZON)
- Pillow for reclining
- Food: Snacks and something to eat symbolically as our meal during the Seder
Following our time together we hope you will enjoy a full meal!
