There is nothing quite like Seder with the family, especially the Sydney COA family.
The COA Seders traditionally bring 80 to 100 people together. Featuring a cut down version of the Haggadah and led by Rabbi Ingram with lots of singing and participation in the readings by Seder guests.
It is a huge undertaking which would be impossible without the days of preparation put in by the volunteers. On Sunday they were making matzo balls, on Tuesday they were making potato salad, cooking compote and making sure there was enough Horseradish and matzo to go around.
A COA spokesperson said: “The comradery was tangible and irresistible, it was hard to find a face without a smile as we engaged in perhaps the best loved of annual festival celebrations. When we came to Ma Nish Tanah the whole room was singing along. Thank you to the Rabbi Ingram, to the catering and serving volunteers, and to our guests, who made it such a special event.”
