PASSOVER NEWS from Caroline Figiel:
Children's Shabbat on April 10th will be an interactive Passover Seder for families. Knowing that many of us will either postpone their seder or not be able to buy traditional food, we are asking families to get creative!
- Please create your own Seder Plate and send me a picture to email@example.com so that I can display your beautiful plates. The sky's the limit-so make it out of any materials you have on hand.
- For those who are interested in adding a "hands on" component to this seder, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can email you that portion of the service.

Lessons From This Week's Torah Portion
The Eternal One spoke to Moses, saying: "Command Aaron and his sons thus: This is the ritual of the burnt offering: The burnt offering itself shall remain where it is burned upon the altar all night until morning, while the fire on the altar
is kept going on it."
