Dear CBH Congregants and Families,

We are so happy to invite you to our first (and God willing, not annual) virtual Seder on Wednesday, April 8th at 6 PM (PDT).  

Below you will find information on how to Zoom in as well as to maximize your participation in the Seder.

Zoom is very user friendly - all you have to do is click on this link it will open up as a separate window. 

If you are new to Zoom, be patient, it has to load an app to get to the meeting.  One benefit of Zoom is that everyone attending can see and hear the other participants (assuming your device has a camera and microphone).  

For the Seder, you can enter the "room" at 5:30 PM and can chat with each other.  We plan to start the Seder at 6:00 PM. Remember to keep your microphone muted unless you are the speaker.

To help make the Seder more meaningful, fun and participatory, participants can sign up for a reading. We will send out a sign up sheet on Sunday. 

Please forward this invitation email to anyone you know that is not on our regular email list if you think they'd like to join.
