Passover Seder - Ethiopian Style!

I will be at a wedding in Colorado the day before Passover and will be flying back into LAX just a few hours before Passover starts this year. Thus, I am not in a position to prepare, set-up, and host Passover seder in the manner I have done in the past. The new option we were going to have also just fell through due to their change of family circumstances. Thus, unless someone comes forward and is able to offer a good workable site for this first night of Passover, we have just decided to have a special new fun, outside-the-box option - anyone, though, who follows the traditional Ashkenazic approach to Passover might not want to join us (although we would certainly welcome you) - sorry about that - most Rabbis these days, however, do agree that there is nothing wrong with consuming lentils, etc. as they are great protein sources and would not even rise if made into flour ...

All that said, our plans now are to meet at Rahel's Vegan Ethiopian Cuisine in West LA at 5:30pm - we will use the vegan Haggadah, "The Haggadah for a New World" and do a full seder including all the traditional fourteen components - then, our Shulchan Orech, our festive meal, will be a feast from Rahel's - tentatively it seems like it would cost $25 per person, but if we get a good sized group, then we may be able to get the price down.

Please ONLY RSVP AFFIRMATIVELY IF YOU ARE DEFINITELY PLANNING TO JOIN US -

Do Be prepared that this is a full seder - we will be focused on the Haggadah for maybe an hour and a half or so before we eat and we will continue with completing the Haggadah after we eat.

Any questions, please let me know.


WITH LESS THAN A WEEK TO GO - AFFIRMATIVE RSVPers WERE JUST MESSAGED WITH FURTHER DETAILS :)

    I am looking forward to experiencing the second night with the Meetup group.
    Have a great first night!

      Most likely will be in Westlake. Will that work for you? Also, who are the three for whom you have RSVPed? Thanks :)
