Beginning at 6:30 pm the program will open with a delicious holiday dinner with all the Passover trimmings. This will be followed by the seder program including the Four Questions, Hagadah readings, hand baked matzah, four cups of wine and bitter herbs. Throughout the evening the age old-customs and traditions will be carefully explained – spiced with stories, humor and special activities to keep the children’s attention.
In addition Chabad of NW Metro Denver is keeping the Seder experience affordable. Adults are just $18 and kids 12 and under are $10. (Reservations must be made by March 31: thereafter prices are $25 an adult and $15 a child 12 and under.)
With other community Seders costing as much as $60 a person many families have been priced out of attending a Seder and, not wanting to ask for a hand-out, they simply don’t attend. At Chabad we believe that every Jew should be able to celebrate Passover – the birthday of the Jewish nation – regardless of their financial situation.
“We hope that the Passover dinner at the beginning of the evening and an early finish (9:30 pm) coupled with affordable pricing will make many more people – especially those with young children – feel comfortable attending the Seder,” explained Rabbi Benjy Brackman who along with his wife Leah will be hosting the Seder as they have done in North Metro Denver for the past nine years.
A more in depth Seder will take place on the following night – Saturday April 7th – at Chabad of NW Metro Denver 4505 W 112th Ave in Westminster, beginning at 8:15 pm. For more information and to make reservations, please call 303.429.5177 or visit www.COJewish.com/seder.
