Our Passover seders are free, user friendly and traditional. We offer all of the invaluable joy and meaning at no cost. Our Passover sedarim will be taking place at the beautiful Young Israel of New Rochelle and are cosponsored with the synagogue that has once again opened its doors with no charge. We are honored that the Oster Family has chosen to sponsor the sederim in memory of my long time study partner Stephen Oster.

So, why should you come? Maybe because you want the warm atmosphere we have built even though many people who come don’t really know anyone there. Maybe you should come because you want a seder that is sophisticated but fun and easy to understand at the same time. Maybe you should come because you can’t beat the price (FREE-voluntary contributions accepted). But you know you should come-one night or both and we would love to have you.

Reservations are required, space is limited and contributions accepted. To learn more and to reserve, call Mat Hoffman at (914) 481-7584 today. Please make our work easier by reserving as soon as you can. Also, you too can support us by mailing a tax deductible check to the Flame at 62 Rose Hill Ave, 10804.

And, if you are running your own seder and would like tips, we would be happy to set up an internet class if there is interest. Please let us know about that too.
