Contact Rabbi Laurie Rutenberg

Children know "make believe."  At this seder, we role play our jobs in Egypt, build pyramids, wander through the desert, escape Egypt through the Reed Sea, and feast in freedom.  Parents will have a chance to ask, "What "Egypts" does my and do other families experience today, and what is the nature of our family's freedom?"  Gesher's Rabbi Gary Schoenberg and Rabbi Laurie Rutenberg will lead us on this Passover journey from a heated tent encampment in the desert, through the Reed Sea, to a delicious indoor banquet (prepared lovingly by the rabbis)  in celebration of our freedom.
Gesher provides slave clothing, exit visas and sustenance for all.  Please  bring pillows on which to sit and dress warmly, with layers.   Children are invited to bring a baby doll (a boy doll or one who can look like a boy) wrapped in a blanket and placed inside a basket.  During the seder, they will be able to "hide" the baby "boys" from the Pharoah.
RSVP is a must. Visit www.ourjewishhome.org for more information and to reserve your space.
Adults: $36; Children ages 4-12: $15. No one is turned away for inability to pay this amount.
