Seder Update

I know that many of you have been asking about details for the annual Aitz Chaim community Pesach seder. Well, we ARE going to have a Seder.  It will be the second night of Passover, on the evening of Saturday, April 23. As always, it will be in the banquet room at Clark and Lewies at the O’Haire Motor Inn.

Unfortunately, we haven’t received final word on pricing from our caterer yet.  We hope to be able to get you that information this week so that you can begin making reservations. Pricing should be slightly higher than last year. As always, we will do everything we can to keep it affordable.

Our small congregational size means that we can only have a limited number of activities per year. I look forward to seeing all of you at our Seder this year — it has been too long since our community has last gathered!
