Where are you getting your pizza—from delivery, from your freezer, or from your very own kitchen? Or—are you making a big sandwich on 7-grain bread, thickly sliced? However you choose to bring back the chametz, come to our congregational Zoom event and virtually share your meals and desserts. Depending on the number of attendees, we’ll schmooze (and eat together, if desired) in one group or enter into breakout rooms. One thing is guaranteed—a good time will be had by all!!!

And, who wants to help the Soup Kitchen and have a chance to win a few shekels? Participate in the OPTIONAL 50/50 raffle. Half of the received money will benefit the Soup Kitchen and the other half could go to YOU!!! We hope to see you on April 3, but attendance is not required to win. Optional suggested donation: $18. Participation in the raffle is NOT required to attend the zoom gathering.

While reservations are not required, we’d love to know if you are planning to attend. Register here.
