Thanks to a number of you who have stepped up to help, we will be having a second night seder on April 15th, starting at 6 PM.
Eric Nussbaum has volunteered to once again be our chef and our mashgiach, the person who monitors that our kitchen and all the food prepared therein will be kosher for Passover. Eric will need people to help prepare the kitchen and the food.
We will need a few people to make sure that our Passover seder is beautiful, that the food is served properly, that the ritual parts of the service will be taken care of.
I will orchestrate the seder and if you want to contribute a story, some music or a teaching on one of the aspects of the seder, I will be happy to include you.
As we begin preparing for Passover we remember that spring is not far behind although it still feels far away.
PS: We will need help with publicity. We would like to have as many people in our community join us in this wonderful event.

Teen DIY: Now and Then, a 2-session series
Come to one or both sessions.
Sunday, March 9th, & Sunday, March 23rd, 1-4 p.m.
Temple Israel, Greenfield, is hosting a DIY (Do-It Yourself) event for Jewish teens and friends on Sunday, March 9th from 1-4 p.m., bringing together teens from Mass., New Hampshire and Vermont for learning and creating. Learn from each other about what we like about being teenagers today, and learn from our special guests, teens from 100 years ago, about their lives. We'll explore what we like about hanging out with friends...music, food, clothing, jobs, then and now.
Then we'll dive into projects, sewing simple upcycled clothing, cooking homemade noodles, or sharing your own creative projects. Everyone will learn a basic DIY skill that is fun today and was necessary 100 years ago. We'll supply project ideas, the sewing machine, noodle fixings and hearty snacks.
Bring things that you've made to show. If you want to sew, bring old T-shirts, sweatshirts, pants.
The program is led by David Arfa, Peggy Davis, and Jess Rigollaud and is for 6-12th graders.
Cost: $5 for members of Temple Israel, $8 for all others.
Location: Temple Israel, 27 Pierce St. Greenfield MA
Date and time: Sunday, March 9, 1-4 p.m.
