Temple Beth Shalom had its largest Passover Seder turnout ever Monday, April 14 as it opened its doors 7 p.m. as part of the National Jewish Outreach Program’s Passover Across America initiative.
“We’re really taking it forward and letting people know that we’re here,” Temple Beth Shalom Rabbi Zev Sonnenstein said.
About 100 people attended the event.
Passover Across America Communal Outreach Seders are hands-on and explanatory, designed to help Jewish people with limited religious education “develop a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, the Seder’s customs and rituals,” according to the National Jewish Outreach Program’s website.
Temple Beth Shalom will also hold a Yizkor service, a memorial service held in congregation four times a year, at 10 a.m. April 21.
Temple Beth Shalom celebrated its 40th year in Palm Coast in 2013. It is an inclusive congregation that welcomes interfaith families, LGBT individuals and people who are not Jewish but would like to learn more about the religion.
Sonnenstein, formerly the congregation’s cantor, was ordained as a rabbi in January.
Regular services are held Friday evenings at 7:15 and Saturday mornings at 9:15.
