Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,
Tomorrow is Rosh Chodesh (New Moon of the month of) Nissan, which means the first seder is two weeks from tonight! If you are joining us for our second-night community seder at CBI on Saturday April 4 (information below), please RSVP to the office today if you can, so that we can appropriately plan for ordering the kosher chicken which will be our main dish.
We welcome RSVPs also for two pre-Passover experiences. Jen Burt will be leading a workshop in baking your own matzah in the CBI kitchen on Monday March 30. Making matzah is super-easy — all you need is flour, water, and a very short period of time! — and we’ll make some matzot for our home seders and perhaps also for the synagogue seder as well. If you’d like to join us for baking matzah, please let us know.
And on Wednesday April 1, Jen Burt will be making homemade gefilte fish in the CBI kitchen. Have you ever wanted to learn how to make gefilte fish from scratch? (Hint: the real thing feels, and tastes, entirely different from the stuff one gets from a jar!) If you’d like to join us for making gefilte fish, please let us know that too.
Wishing everyone blessings as Shabbat and Rosh Chodesh approach!
Shabbat shalom and chodesh tov,
