The Community Second Night Seder was wonderful!

Cantor Camhi led the Seder with 16 people at the temple in a wonderful fun-filled Seder filled with music and meaning.  The food from Jerry and Harvey’s was terrific and plentiful.  Thank you Jerry and Harvey’s!  The people who attended loved the company and the atmosphere created by the Cantor.  Special thanks, too, to Rosy and Tello who helped set up the Seder and worked to make it very special.  Chag Sameach!
