We're making a Seder, and we hope you can be our guests, for 1 or both Seders! Join us for an interactive, user-friendly Passover Seder! Enjoy the four cups of wine, hand-crafted shmura matzah, a gourmet Passover dinner, and meaningful song, discussion, and Passover insights!

Shmurah Matzah

Traditional handmade shmurah matzah is recommended for seder use.

 

Shmurah means watched, and it is an apt description of this matzah, who's ingredients are watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing.

 

Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to use Shmurah Matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate.

Sell Chametz

As is the custom every year before Passover, we traditionally sell all of our chametz, the leavened food items, before the holiday begins.

 

Since there are many legal intricacies involved in this sale, a rabbi acts as our agent both to sell the chametz to the non-Jew on the morning before Passover and also to buy it back the evening after Passover ends.
