Affordable Community Pesah Seder, April 12

On Wednesday, April 12, the first night of Passover, people in NYC looking for a place for a seder that is affordable, traditional, though provoking, egalitarian, and multigenerational, need look no further. From the group that brought us “free, walk-in service to meet the needs of many Jews who do not have a place to pray on the High Holidays” a few months back, Ohel Ayalah presents its second annual Passover Seder:

First Night: Wednesday, April 12, 6:30 p.m.
Great Hall of First Presbyterian Church
Fifth Avenue at West 12th Street – New York City
4,5,6,N,R to Union Square; F,L to 14th Street
Cost – $30.00 – Advance reservations required.
Please bring your current photo I.D.

The seder leaders will be none other than the following fabulous women:

  1. I just went to their site; reservations are already closed.
    I live in Boston, but happened to be in New York for Rosh Hashanah, staying near the church where Ohel Ayalah meets. I went there and tried to get in, but was refused; they were over the limit allowed by the fire regulations! If they’re going to be doing this on a regular basis, they need to get a larger space.

  2. I just checked the site and went to the reservations page– there’s no indication that they’re already booked! Just hit “click here to make a reservation” and you’re all set. Chag sameach.

  3. Well, you seem to be correct. I clicked on the link, and PayPal was ready to take accept payment. On their home page, though, it does say, “Reservations have been closed.”

  4. I emailed Dr. Hauptman and this is the email I received back:
    Yes, the Seder is still open. It sells out a few days before Pesah, judging from last year. Many people like to make up their minds at the last minute. About one-fifth has already been reserved.

  5. Please, maybe I missed something,
    but where can I register for the April 12th Seder? (There are actually 6 of us wishing to go.)
    Thank you, thank you,
