Volunteers Needed For Senior Seders

JFS Seder in 2009

Every year, Jewish Family Services hosts Passover seders for local seniors.  This year, these seders are being held the week of Spring break, and due to this timing, we have had an especially small response. If you will be in town Monday through Thursday, March 22 thru the 25th, won’t you consider giving Jewish Family Service an hour and a half of your time?  These services are so important to our seniors – it’s one way of showing them that there is a Jewish community that cares about them.

We will be holding abbreviated Passover seders at 4 locations in Boulder. As always, we would appreciate any and all things that you might do – from bringing a jar of horseradish, to helping serve or set the table, or mingling with the residents. If you’ve never volunteered before, we promise you will take wonderful feelings away with you.

The seders take place on these dates:

  • Monday, March 22 at 4pm
  • Tuesday, March 23 at 4 pm
  • Wednesday, March 24  at 4 pm
  • Thursday, March 25 at 4 pm

We are collecting donations for the things we’ll need for the seders:

  • Grape juice
  • Matzo
  • Parsley
  • Horseradish
  • Peeled hardboiled eggs
  • Charoset
  • Gefilte Fish
  • Macaroons, candy, cookies

If you are unable to attend a seder please consider donating a few items to JFS.  We have wonderful rabbis and seder leaders who have already volunteered their time – it’s going to be lots of fun, so please bring your children.

Thank you so much in advance.  To volunteer for one of the seders, or you have any questions, please contact Roberta Reinfeld, Care Manager/Volunteer Coordinator, Jewish Family Service of Colorado at (303) 415-1025 or rreinfeld@jewishfamilyservice.org.

Passover Drash: A Formula for the Epic Charoses

One of the centerpieces of the Seder plate is the Charoses which is meant to remind us of the mortar with which our ancestors bonded bricks when they were enslaved in Egypt. On the other hand there is also a celebratory element of the Charoses. How should we understand these to different messages?
