Chabad centers to hold community seders

“Many people remember their grandmother telling stories of the family’s seder table back in Poland,” according to Rabbi Chaim Zvi Ehrenreich, spiritual leader of Chabad JEC in Chestnut Ridge. “Grandma would say, ‘They don’t make a seder like they used to.’ Well, the Chabad community seder would make any Jewish grandmother feel right at home.”

The seder will recount the Exodus from Egypt and celebrate the birth of the Jewish people. The evening will include the traditional four cups of wine, shmura matzah and a five-course meal. Cost varies by location and sponsors are welcome at $180.
