Dietary Restrictions

All food served will adhere to Judea Reform's kosher-style dietary policy and will be kosher for Passover. If anyone in your party needs a vegan or gluten-free meal, please indicate how many below. We will do our best to accommodate special dietary needs; however, please understand due to the size of this event, not all dietary needs can be met.


Donate a Plate

We never want the price of a dinner to be a barrier for our community. If you would like to offset the cost of dinner for someone who needs financial assistance to attend, you can make a tax-deductible donation of $36 to do so. Want to donate a plate? Check the checkbox below to make a tax-deductible donation of $36. Thank you for your generosity!

Donate Wine

We can’t make this seder happen without the Judea community! Please consider bringing a bottle of wine (or more!) with you to share with other guests. Sign up below to commit to bringing wine. Wine does not need to be kosher for Passover wine - any wine is fine.

Note: You can bring your wine bottles to the seder or drop them off at the synagogue up to week prior to the seder. If you bring them to the seder, we’ll be collecting them at a central place and distributing amongst all the tables. It may be that you don't end up with your own bottle, so now may not be the time to bring your favorite fancy Burgundy straight from France! :)
