I am very excited to inform you that JDCC is currently in the filming
stages for our new and updated Multimedia video which will be shown at our
10th annual Passover Community Seder on April 6th.
What Is A Multimedia Seder? For years, deaf people have had to look at
their books and try to follow the leaders or sign language interpreters.
JDCC decided to develop a user-friendly seder, allowing us to focus on the
screen without having to worry about what page we are on. We can relax at
our table with family and friends and thoroughly experience the story of
New features include captions on all presentations and improved quality.
Our fundraising goal ran short so please do make your Passover donation to
help us keep the Seder costs to a minimum. Temple Adat Ari El has a new
exclusive caterer, Warren Works. They charge much more than we have ever
paid so we had to increase our prices to provide you with a topquality
kosher seder which is cost effective as compared elsewhere. We will still
have financial assistance available for those who can't aford and want to
attend our Seder.
A new feature will be added: There will be a social hour which will give
people a chance to chat before we begin the seder. Suggested advice:
please eat a bit before coming to our Seder as we won't be eating dinner
until around 8pm so don't come in famished! You should have received the
invitation by now. If you haven't, please contact us and we will send you

Happy Tu B'Shevat and Happy Purim!
