CHAD GAD YA
Our Aitz Chaim Community Passover Seder 5774 (2014) was another rousing success. The number of participants surpassed expectations. As always, there were a few memorable impromptu moments, such as the asking of the Four Questions and the search for the Afikomen.
A special thank you to our Seder leader Aaron Weissman, who did a masterful job of guiding us through the Haggadah and the songs. Aaron has led the Seder for several years now. In order to fulfill the mitzvoth of passing on our heritage to the next generation, he says that next year there will be a few younger helpers who will volunteer (or be voluntold) to lead the Seder.
Next year, if not in Jerusalem, we plan to be again at Clark and Lewie’s. Our sincere thanks for their hospitality and expertise at preparing this symbolic meal, especially with the head count rising almost to the very hour of the Seder. After several years, they are really getting the hang of it.

Next year, wherever we are, perhaps Aaron should sing the words to an old song:
“What would you say if I sang out a tune, would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song, and I’ll try not to sing out of key.
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends. …”
And he does. Thank you, Aaron, and all the friends, old and new, who participated in our Community Seder.
Shall we take it on the road?

Joy, what a cute posting! Don & I really miss not being part of the community seder. Am so pleased it was well attended. Helen
Joy, is “voluntold” a new word that you made up – it should be in the dictionary.
No, I didn’t make up the word, but I know from experience what it means.
