HW Fellowship House Organizing Passover Seder

Can you help contribute so elderly Jewish residents can celebrate holiday?

Hunters Woods Fellowship House is organizing a Passover Seder for about 80 elderly Russian Jewish residents and guests.

Fellowship House is organizing the Seder for 1 p.m. on March 28. Passover is the annual celebration of the Jewish people's freedom from slavery in Egypt.

A $20 donation will give one senior the chance to reconnect with his or her Jewish identity and heritage via early dinner and this beautiful tradition, organizers said. 

Please send your contribution no later than February 28, 2013 to Hunter Woods Fellowship House ( HWFH),  2231 Colts Neck Rd, Reston, VA, 20191

For questions, email: Service Coordinator: Lynette K Jacob, MSW at ljacob@fellowshipsquare.org.

In 2011, Jewish residents at Hunters Woods Fellowship House complained of discrimination when they were denied access to a room in which to throw a Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) celebration. Read about that here.
