CBI Seder Connections 

This year CBI will not be hosting a Second Night Seder (on Thursday, April 6), but we’d like to assist our members in finding somewhere to celebrate with other members of the congregation or local Jewish community. If you plan to hold your own Second Night Seder, and have space to host additional CBI members, please contact the CBI office (or call 916-446-4861) to provide details, including how many additional guests you can accommodate. And if you’re in need of a place to celebrate the second night of Pesach, please contact the office with your request. We’ll match congregants in need of a Second Night Seder with spaces at other members’ tables. Please contact us by Sunday, April 2, so we may assist you in a timely manner.
