Passover Seder for Adults with Special Needs

Jewish Community Services (JCS) and the Jewish Community Center (JCC) will hold a Model Seder for adults ages 18 and over with special needs and their families on Thursday, April 3, 2014.  The cost for attending is $13.50 per person, and reservations are required by March 27.   Seder participants will use a Haggadah prepared especially for the event. They will enjoy traditional Passover foods and take part in telling the story of Passover and singing.  Rabbi Tsvi Schur will lead the Seder, with music provided by locally based Jewish performer Avraham Rosenblum.

Volunteers from JCS, THE ASSOCIATED, Jewish Volunteer Connection, the Rotary Club of Pikesville, Kiwanis Club of Pikesville, B’nai B’rith, and the general community will staff the Seder.

“For over forty years, the Model Seder has given adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to participate in a meaningful and spiritually enriching community celebration of the Passover holiday. All those involved – guests, volunteers, staff, Seder leaders, family members – find this event a joyous highlight of the year,” said Beth Land Hecht, LCSW-C, Manager of JCS Volunteer Services
