Looking for a seder?

The National Jewish Outreach Program, which tries to reel in unobservant Jews, is co-sponsoring “communal outreach” seders across the country.

Including two in Westchester.

Young Israel of New Rochelle will host FREE community seders (the plural is really sedarim) on Monday and Tuesday — the first two nights of Passover — at 8 p.m. each night.

The FLAME, a long-standing Jewish outreach group run by local Rabbi Mat Hoffman, will oversee the seders in New Rochelle.

You may remember that Hoffman, an Orthodox rabbi from New Rochelle, hosted High Holy Day services in 2006 inside a (kosher) Chinese restaurant.

There will also be a free community seder on Tuesday at 8:45 p.m. at the Mount Kisco Hebrew Congregation.

For info: office@mkhc.org.

ADD: I should have mentioned that the Chabad Lubavitch have a website that locates open seders AROUND THE WORLD.

Enter your country, state, city and zip code and find a seder near you!

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
