Passover Community Seder

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 15 Nisan 5777

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

What if you sat down to a Passover Seder and your plate was empty?

Sherith Israel’s lively and festive community seder is the congregation’s annual fundraiser for our Chicken Soupers and HaMotzi programs which benefit homebound seniors, people with chronic illnesses, and adults and children at the Women’s Shelter of San Francisco and the Compass Family Center.

Our wonderful volunteers, who sustain these critical programs year after year will cater dinner, and our clergy, Rabbis Jessica Graf and Julie Saxe-Taller and Cantor David Frommer, will keep us all on the same page.

Join us for a memorable meal prepared by our volunteers as we celebrate Passover as a community: matzah ball soup, kosher chicken. Vegan options for the meal will be available. Your donation is tax-deductible.

"Let all who are hungry come eat." We say these words every year as we sit down to tell the story of the Israelites’ journey from bondage to freedom. Nearly 15,000 children and adults in San Francisco go to bed hungry every night. Sherith Israel’s Chicken Soupers and HaMotzi programs help ease that pain. Our volunteers prepare and deliver nutritious meals every Sunday.  

It costs more than $1,000 a month to run these two crucial programs. Our yearly shopping list: $4,000 for fresh vegetables; $2,500 for pasta, rice and potatoes; $2,400 for chicken and ground turkey; $1,500 for milk (520 gallons); $1,200 for fresh fruit (5200 pieces); $600 for packaging/sending food to individual homes.
