2nd Night: Seder Matching!
Saturday, April 23, 2016 – at a home near you


Want to be a guest at a Second Seder?  Are you hosting and have room for an extra seat?

All year round – and especially on Passover – we are encouraged to welcome guests and strangers to our homes. This is the perfect opportunity to meet new friends from the Lab/Shul community in a more intimate setting and create new Seder memories and traditions.

This year, a team of Lab/Shul staff and volunteers are helping make it happen, playing matchmaker so you can upgrade your Second Seder.

To participate:

  1. Please fill out THIS SURVEY by April 4th.
  2. Using the information that you provide we will do our very best to find you the perfect match. We will let you know by April 13th if we found a match.
  3. Once the match is made the rest is up to the host(s) and guest(s).
