Passover on Kauai

We’re celebrating Passover with our new Haggadot, The Open Door! The Jewish Community of Kauai extends an invitation to members and visitors for our annual Passover Seder, led by Sara Silverman. Traditional Seder plates, foods and kosher wine will accompany the Seder. Catering provided by JCK’s Sandy Jennings, Fresh from the Garden.

For already paid members of JCK, the community is generously subsidizing $25 per person towards the cost of the Seder meal, as we did last year. That is reflected in the $55 per person cost this year. We look forward to sharing this year’s Seder with all of you!
