Recently, Boulder Jewish Family Service hosted Passover Seders at five senior residences in the Boulder area. Many residents commented on how meaningful and enjoyable the services were. They appreciated the opportunity to interact with other Jewish people of all ages and celebrate their traditions.

About 75 residents attended, along with many volunteers from local congregations and from Jewish Family Service. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make these Seders special!

Our appreciation also goes out to Rabbi Marc Soloway, Joseph Lukasik, Carolyn Bleicher, Moshe Scheiner, and David Bernstein for leading the services. Thank you to Rabbi Josh Rose who had planned to host a sixth Seder, but unfortunately it was canceled due to health problems at the residence.

We look forward to returning to these senior residences when we celebrate Rosh Hashanah in September.
