May they who observe the Shabbat and call it a delight rejoice in Your Kingdom. May the people who sanctify the seventh day be sated and delighted with Your bounty. For You did find pleasure in the seventh day, and did sanctify it, calling it the most desirable of days, in remembrance of creation. Sanctify us through Your commandments, and grant our portion in Your Torah. Give us abundantly of Your goodness and make us rejoice in You salvation! Purify our heartsto serve You in truth…Blessed are You, O L-rd, who hallowest the Shabbat.
This year we had a packed house for our Congregation’s Family Seder.
We set the tables for 69 people! And this year I (Tracy) decided to buy some plastic frogs for the tables. The kids loved them and even the adults!
The desserts this year were so yummy!
And the dinner was delicious as usual. No lamb this year (which is actually more proper, since the Temple is not standing), but the chicken was so good. The kitchen help was exceptional and there were actually 4 servers, but only 2 are pictured.
One of the attendees took these pics with her iPhone, of the frogs drinking too many cups of grape juice. LOL!
NEXT YEAR IN Jerusalem.

You did choose us for Your service from among all peoples, loving us and taking delight in us. You did exalt us above all tongues by making us holy through Your commandments. You have drawn us near, O our King, unto Your service and have called us by Your great and holy name. And You have given us in love, O L-rd our G-d, holidays for gladness, festivals and seasons for rejoicing. You have granted us this Shabbat day and this Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Season of our Freedom.
O L-rd our G-d, grant that we and all Your people…find delight in the study of the Torah.May we and our children and all the future generations of the house of Israel know Your nameand learn Your Torah for its own sake. Blessed art Thou, O L-rd, who teachesthe Torah to Your people Israel.
It was a great teaching Seder for the Community.
We had 40 people come and learn about Passover and how to do a Seder.
The food was delicious and the unleavened Kosher dessert was fabulous!
The servers were awesome and the clean up was quick.
Thanks to everyone who made it a success! Next Year in Jerusalem!
