This year we had an excellent turnout for our Communal Seder held in the hall behind Scots Church. 52 people, including a family group of 12 from Melbourne attended. It was great to having such a large crowd present, particularly 11 children that made this a family oriented event.
Everyone contributed to a wonderful assortment of food for dinner. Nobody went home hungry! Many thanks to those who helped with preparation and cleaning up.
Jordana led the Seder in a relaxed engaging manner inviting participation throughout. The young children from Melbourne added to the night by singing a Yiddish song. Over dinner it was lovely to see spirited discussions and conversations.
The success of the evening bodes well for our future as a growing congregation and community.

On behalf of the congregation, many thanks to our event coordinator Louise for organising Pesach, and for this write-up!

On ANZAC Day 2019, the congregation continued the tradition of honoring ANZAC Day. Stephen Graetzer led a short service for a small group of members representing three generations of Jewish Hobartians.
After the service, we walked to the Centopath where a beautiful wreath with a Magan David was laid as part of the ceremony.
