HOME HOSPITALITY FOR THE FIRST SEDER

No one should be alone on Pesach. Ansche Chesed members who are hosting seders have traditionally opened their homes to members who need a place to attend the seder. If you would like to attend a seder or host someone for either night of Pesach, you can find more information in the Pesach mailing that was sent out this week.

BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE

The Book of Remembrance lists those close to us who have passed away, but who have not been forgotten. It is published in the fall and spring of each year. It is distributed to congregants on the four days on which we recite Yizkor, the memorial service: the last day of Passover, the second day of Shavuot, Yom Kippur, and Shemini Atzeret. When recalling the memories of our loved ones during the Yizkor service, we pledge charity to perpetuate their ideals. In this booklet, there is a tangible place for each of us to publicly remember those we miss.

FEEDING THE HUNGRY

As in past years, we are collecting non-perishable packaged foods for the West Side Campaign Against Hunger. Food may be brought to the 100th Street lobby until Sunday, March 25 at noon. Additionally, you can donate to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund, writing WSCAH in the memo, or donate online at www.wscah.org.
