After 2 long years, we are ready to celebrate Passover TOGETHER again!
Join fellow Temple Isaiah members and their guests at our potluck seder on the first night of Passover, Friday, April 15, starting promptly at 5pm in the Social Hall. Please arrive at 4:30pm to get settled and seated. Everyone in the Temple Isaiah community is invited - singles, couples, families, havurot. Our seder will be led by Rabbi Perlman, Rabbi Miller, and Cantor Korn.
Register by Thursday, April 13. Sign-up ends when all the seating slots are filled.
As you sign up, please remember: if you are coming with more than 1 or 2 people, we ask that you please sign up to bring at least a main dish or a side dish, in addition to any seder items you can loan us for the evening (seder plate, matzah cover, etc.) The amount of food you bring should reflect the size of your family / group. Please consider what you would spend at home or out to feed this number of people and contribute accordingly if you are able. Otherwise we will not have enough food for the meal.
This year, Temple Isaiah will provide matzah, soup, haroset, hardboiled eggs, parsley, bitter herbs, horseradish, salt water, grape juice, coffee and tea.
If you wish to make a financial contribution to help cover the costs of this mitzvah - in addition to your potluck item(s) - please go to https://temple-isaiah.org/about/donate. We are hoping that you will be able to contribute $18 per person or $54 per family.
Food Preparation/Serving Instructions
**** All food items must be kosher for Passover and non-dairy ****
If possible, please bring your contributions to the meal on DISPOSABLE dishes or trays as it is very challenging to return serving dishes to individuals after the seder.
If you can not use disposable items, your serving dishes MUST be clearly marked with your name (use a mailing label or masking tape). If your serving items need to be returned to you, please be patient at the end of the meal. Serving utensils would be greatly appreciated with your food contributions as well.
There is NO food prep allowed in the kitchen by attendees - please only bring items that are ready to be put on the buffet tables.
If your item needs to be reheated, please clearly write the instructions on the item with your name & mobile phone number as well.
Seating is on a first come, first served basis so please arrive on time (but no earlier than 4:30PM.) You will be seated based on your original order preference (indoor or outdoor). NOTE that if you select outdoor seating, there is no guarantee that there will be indoor seating available if the weather is inclement - only if we have not filled the allotted indoor spaces will there be space to move indoors.
If you want wine or other other beverages at your table, please bring an opener as well.
Please arrive early enough to get your food items ready for serving and to be seated by 5:00pm. We will begin promptly at 5:00pm.
Delivery of items
Seder plate items and nonperishable food items may be dropped off in the designated area of the kitchen:
Wednesday, 4/13 from 9am to 5pm -- non perishable & ritual items

Ritual and items for the Seder plates must be at the Temple kitchen by 2pm on April 15 in order to set the tables. Due to the large number of tables, you may not be able to be seated at a table with your own ritual items. We hope you understand.
