This past Saturday, April 23, (after Shabbat was over) the J-Teen department at the Boulder JCC hosted their first Chocolate Seder. The event turned out to be a great success! With 18 Jewish High Schoolers in attendance, the seder was led by two of the J-Teen Council members: Savi Bailey and Yuliya Levertova.
The night was filled with 4 cups of chocolate milk, strawberries for the karpas, chocolate fondue for the salt-water, chocolate covered fruit for the charoset, bitter sweet chocolate for the maror, and s’mores for the Hillel sandwich. There was also some Matzah Brei to eat to offset the chocolate. All of the food was, of course, 100% Kosher for Passover.
The 4 questions were asked with a chocolate twist, as well as the Retelling of the Story of Exodus. Following, the Afikoman was hidden and, after much chaos, was finally found by Sophia Bagi who won a $15 iTunes gift card! The seder concluded with the final cup of chocolate milk (for those who had room left) and ended with everyone feeling more than satiated.
Pictures of the event can be found on the J-Teen facebook fan page here and upcoming J-Teen events can be found at the Boulder JCC website (www.boulderjcc.org) under the J-Teen tab.
With stomachs full of chocolate, the J-Teen council is excited to put on this event again next year!
