The past couple of years have seen our First Night Passover Seder expand to very large numbers.  This year the Seder is April 10.  Because of the work involved, we need help this year in ordering the food, preparing the Social Hall, taking the RSVPs and overall general planning.  If you want to help, you must contact Rabbi Stanway at 732-222-3754 by March 17th.  This is a firm cut-off date.  The Seder is a community experience and in order for us to create this experience, we will need members of the TBM community to help make it happen.  Rabbi Stanway is putting together this ad hoc committee to provide for our temple family and friends to fulfill the mitzvah of the Seder.  Will you help?
