Dear Kol Rinah Family, 
Why is this night different from all other nights?”
Passover this year may feel different.  After October 7, we may be thinking of Jews still in bondage, still hostages.  We may notice Israel’s presence (and absence) in the Haggadah.  Our own freedom and liberation may feel constrained amidst antisemitism. 
This year again, Kol Rinah is offering a congregational second seder.  I’m so glad that the calendar and catering have aligned to make this possible.  At our congregational seder, we’ll attend to some of the complicated emotions around Israel swirling around and amidst the Haggadah this year. 
Everyone who wants to come (who RSVPs by April 9!) is welcome.  Call the office or go to our website to sign up, and please contact me if cost is a concern. 
But there is much to do to get ready for Passover before the second seder!
Enclosed are some important materials for preparing for Passover.  Included in this mailing are: 
If you are in need of Passover food, or have any Passover-related questions, please be in touch with me.  Additionally, if you are looking for a seder to attend, please call the office. 
Wishing you a zissen Pesach—a sweet Passover! 
Rabbi Noah Arnow
