Our Community Seder, held on Saturday March 31, attracted our largest attendance ever! We had over 80 attendees, including congregants, guests, and a good number of attendees from outside BCRC. Rabbi Amy led the Seder with our song leader Rachel Gomberg. Everyone was involved in readings, which even included the four questions read in multiple languages! We learned about some customs not everyone may be familiar with, such as the Miriam's Cup and the use of spring onions to symbolize whips, demonstrated by Stacy Kafka. Following the very enthusiastically received Seder (and the downing of the 4 cups of wine), we had a wonderful dinner, with chickens generously donated by Wegman's (thanks to the Raffmans for arranging), and various traditional sides and desserts provided by our attendees. Special thanks to the Scotts for the matzoh ball soup and charoset, and thanks to all the other families for their donations! And a big 'todah rabah' to Charles Gibson for perfectly coordinating this event, along with all the members of the volunteer team who worked tirelessly to shop, prepare food and set up and clean up afterwards.
