Dear Ottawa Jewish community,
Every year, we have the pleasure of hosting beautiful Passover Seders with many people young and old. Some are friends, some are members, some are affiliated, and some are not. You do not have to be affiliated with Chabad or with any shul to feel comfortable at the Seder.
There are lots of kids, snacks, and many wonderful ice breakers and many have said to feel right at home. No background knowledge necessary.
Please contact us if you wish to be a part of these warm delicious Seders, packed with meaning (and a little humour).
The price is $60/adult - $30/child (but our doors are open to everyone. We always have a few anonymously sponsored seats for those who need. All requests are kept confidential)
