Each year, shortly before the start of Passover, the Brotherhood of Temple Beth-El of Great Neck hosts the Saul Kessler Memorial Interfaith Seder. This is a unique opportunity for non-Jews to join members of Temple Beth-El as they share the rich Passover traditions with friends, neighbors, and associates of other faiths.
Rabbi Meir Feldman, Rabbi Tara Feldman, Rabbi Rachel Van Thyn, and Cantor Lisa R. Hest conduct the Seder and explain the significance of the food and the service. The dinner includes all of the traditional Seder dishes, including the main course. Over the years, the Interfaith Seder has proven to be a most delightful and informative experience. You can find photos of the 2013 Interfaith Seder in our Photo Gallery under the Media menu.
Reminder for Temple Beth-El members: You must be accompanied by one or more non-Jewish friends.
All non-Jews in the Great Neck community are invited to attend, even if they are not familiar with Temple Beth-El and its membership. For anyone who has ever been curious about Passover and the Seder custom, this evening is a distinct opportunity to learn and experience this Jewish tradition.
While the Interfaith Seder is offered free of charge, congregants are asked to donate $28 to the Brotherhood of Temple Beth-El of Great Neck to defray the cost.
