Last Call | Passover on Kauai 2017

Passover on Kauai

Passover is this coming week. The Jewish Community of Kaua`i extends an invitation to members and visitors for our annual Passover Seder, led by Marty Kahn. Traditional Seder plates, foods and kosher wine will accompany the Seder.

For paid members of JCK, the community is generously subsidizing $25 per person towards the cost of the Seder meal. That is reflected in the $50 per person cost this year. The board decided to do this in order to make the Seder more affordable for our members. We look forward to sharing this year’s Seder with all of you!
