Showcasing the Seder takes Solihull by Storm

Event

Members of the community made house visits to sixty-five people who were unable to participate in the communal Seder. They were brought a taste of Pesach through the initiative of Seder-in-a-box. On Pesach the community came together for a large and festive Seder in the shul. It included the traditional songs and activities of Seder night with members young and old coming together to relive the story of our Jewish ancestors being freed from their slavery.

Evaluation from Rabbi Yehuda Pink:

“We made home visits to 65 people who were not planning on attending a Seder and were able to share a taste of Pesach with them, many of these people were the only Jew in their village”.

Participant Feedback:

  • ‘Pesach has always been a very special time for me – (in fact I am actually a Pesach baby !) – which was reinforced this year all being together to go through the Hagadah, knowing that people all over the world would be doing exactly the same as us, making us all one huge happy family’!
  • ‘This is the first time I’ve been to a synagogue in my life and the rabbi and his wife made me feel very welcome’.
