Montevideo

Let All Who Are Hungry Come And Eat

04/03/2009

Every year, my father begins his seder with a story about the year that he, my mother and I were in South America. We were in Montevideo, Uruguay; Passover was only five days away and we had no seder plans. On Friday night, he went to one of the two shuls in town, hoping that he might meet someone who would invite us to his or her home for a seder. No one spoke to him. The next morning, he went to the other shul across town. Right away, he was greeted by the rabbi who promptly invited him over for lunch.

Let All Who Are Hungry Come And Eat

Craigslist, homemade Haggadahs and other adventures in creative seder hosting.
