Passover at K.T.

On Tuesday, March 30th at 7 p.m., Kehillat Tikvah will celebrate the second night of Passover with our second annual Community Seder at Community Methodist Church (81-10 35th Avenue between 81st and 82nd Streets in Jackson Heights).

The Passover Seder is a festive meal at which we remember and celebrate the struggle for freedom from generation to generation.  Our K.T. Community Seder is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, religious or secular.  Join us as we learn about and share:

  • A Delicious Buffet Dinner
  • Stories and Songs of Freedom
  • Camaraderie with Neighbors and Friends
  • Traditions Old and New
  • HOPE and Support for the Challenges Ahead!

The cost is $35 per adult K.T. member, $50 per adult non-member, and $5 per child aged 3-17.  If you have not yet received a registration flyer for this event, click here to view it now!

Please invite your friends and neighbors (whether Jewish or not), and share this information with anyone else who may be interested. There will be a special adjacent playroom for children under rotating parental supervision.

In order to provide the necessary information to our hard-working seder organizers, we must receive your reservations and payment by Tuesday, March 23rd if you are planning to join us for this special evening.

We remain committed to making Kehillat Tikvah a community where personal financial need is not a barrier to participation, even as we remain committed to addressing our congregation’s financial needs responsibly.  With that in mind, we would like to highlight the following two options for participation during this time of financial crisis and uncertainty:

1) If you are among those who have been hit hard by the economy, and who hesitate to participate in our seder as a result, please be assured that confidential financial assistance is available.  Call us at 718-569-1887, or write toKTTreasurer@gmail.com.

2) If, on the other hand, you have a bit more to share with others, we encourage you to participate in the time-honored mitzvah(ethical imperative) of Ma’ot Hittin–literally, “Portions of Wheat”–which is the traditional tzedakah (giving toward justice) to meet the Passover needs of the poor.  Please consider sending a special donation by separate check payable to Kehillat Tikvah with “Ma’ot Hittin” in the memo line, and we will make sure that your donation reaches the appropriate beneficiaries in confidence.

“Let all who are hungry come and eat!”
