While we ask each participant to share in the cost of the seder, the Jewish Community will never exclude anyone whose finances cannot sustain these fees.

If you are in that position, contribute what you can. You do not have to ask for special treatment, and your information will be kept confidential.

If your finances are such that you can contribute a bit more, we will gratefully accept that too. That will help us be able to treat each and every participant as an honored guest at our Seder in the lean years as well as the fat ones.
