Story of
Sinagoga Ner Tamid del Sud, Calabria's First Active Synagogue in 500
years invites you and your family to join us for the story of the Exodus
from Egypt.  Traditional foods, prayers, blessings and stories. Led by
Rabbi Barbara Aiello

The "Hamishe` Seder" continues the tradition of the b'nei anousim - Jews
who were forced into Christian conversion 500 years ago.  At that time
Christian families opened their homes to crypto-Jewish families, and at
great personal peril, allowed their Jewish neighbors to hold a secret
Passover seder on a day that would not arouse the suspicion of the
Inquisiton authorities.  We honor our crypto-Jewish and Christian
families at the Hamishe' Seder.
Rabbi Barbara will serve Kobernick Anchin Jewish Retirement residents
as scholar in residence.  She is available by telephone at 941-306-3255
