Post Passover Pizza Party

“The day after the festivals is known as Isru Chag.  The Chassidic masters teach that fasting is forbidden and festivities are in order.  Join us on Sunday, April 28th for a Post Passover Pizza Party from 4 PM till 6 PM, to celebrate our crossing of the sea together and learn what the Jewish mystics teach of this special time.” – Rabbi Abby Michaleski

We’re making some fun and exciting changes to our Passover celebration this year.  Sunday, April 28th is the day after Passover has ended.  After a long week of matzoh, matzoh and more matzoh, is there a better way to celebrate than with  P I Z Z A !

Anyone joining us on the 28th is asked to bring something fun to eat to share with your TBE family.  Food items suggested are:  drinks, salads, snacks, desserts, and yes –  D A I R Y  items are a must!  Pizza will be provided by TBE and her President, Stephen Schwartz.

 

We have some  F U N   S T U F F  planned as well – a 50/50 and raffle baskets included.

We hope you’ll join us for “a slightly different spin” to our Temple Beth El Passover celebration this year.

Note:  There is no charge for Friends or Members of TBE.  Donations are graciously accepted.  (Suggested non-member donation:  $10 per person.)

RSVPs are not necessary.  If you have any questions please email Steve .
