Hi all,


The Rabbi is hosting a Seder. What's a great gift to bring?


Thank you!

My rabbi has a wonderful sense of humor, so I know that these gefilte fish earrings from Modern Tribe would be a hit!





EDIT: Found these on Etsy, and I like them even better:

May a goy ask a question?

Could someone explain the seder feast?

which part would you like explained?
The seder has many facets -- the recollection of the event of the exodus, the remembrance of the temple and the sacrifices, the celebration of eating the unleavened bread and educating children, the highly ritualized order of events, the songs with their mystical underpinnings.

And the mass of food we eat just because, you know, food.

What in particular are you curious about?

Wine. Should be red unless you can find a higher quality white. Preferably with an alcohol content under 10%. And the most important part is the wine must be mevushal (boiled). If a non Torah Observant Jew (or a goy) touches the wine in an open bottle or shakes even a closed bottle of non mevushal wine, it becomes unkosher. Youíll be able to find the word mevushal (or non mevushal) on the bottle somewhere. Chag semeach.

Option 2 is go find some hand made shmura matza. Depending on the city, should cost anywhere between $16-26 a box (likely with 6 matzos in the box). Only Smura matzo fulfills the commandment to eat matzo on the first night of Seder, and your Rav will appreciate you bringing your own.

I'd make a terrific Kosher for Passover dessert.

Or buy a kosher for Passover dessert at a Jewish grocery (or perhaps online?)!

I'm bringing a couple bottles of Baron Herzog wine to share with the table at my congregation's Community Seder. I'm not much of a wine connoisseur, and since wine has already been suggested here, I was wondering which variety of Baron Herzog wine anyone here might care to recommend? I get it from Ben's Kosher Restaurant in Bayside, NY. (It's probably less expensive from a liquor store, but I haven't found any liquor stores near me that carry it, and I'm not a fan of the Manischewitz that they do carry.)

If youíre not much of a wine drinker, you will likely enjoy Jeunesse semi sweet Cabernet. Itís a grown up wine, but just sweet enough to enjoy if dry wines turn you off. Also is mevushal, which is an absolute must at a community event.
