Last year, we celebrated a special dinner on Maundy Thursday. Dinner was served in the sanctuary at tables set for a “Seder-like” meal. In fact, we did follow a shortened version of a Seder, with a few additions including an altered form of the Lord’s Supper. Following dinner, we entered the pews and concluded with a Tenebrae worship, which reminded us of Jesus’ death on the cross. The whole experience in this form was incredibly moving; thus, the Invitation & Outreach Committee along with the Worship Committee plan to celebrate Maundy Thursday again in such a way.
Please mark your calendar for Apr 1st, 7:00 p.m. The Seder meal menu will include lamb, rice pilaf, greens, various Seder foods, dessert and beverages. A vegetarian dish will also be available. Since Ethel Salamone is “The Chef”, we know that the meal will be delicious. The cost of the meal is $10 per person and $30 for a family.
Reservations will be required since we have to set up tables in the sanctuary and need to plan out the number of seats. There will be a sign up sheet in Fellowship Hall, with a cut off date of Mar 21st. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask Ethel Salamone or Joan Fekete for more information.
