Vegan Seder- Thursday, April 6

Beth Haskalah’s  vegan seder will be on Thursday, April 6th at 6 pm.

Except for last year, we have had a joint seder with the Rochester Vegan Society for many years.  Last year’s seder was just us, Beth Haskalah,  because of the pandemic.  It was a very intimate and family seder. The response I have had indicates our group members wish to proceed with our intimate family seder for this year.  Hopefully we will consider doing a joint seder again for 2024.

Masks will be optional. Vaccination is mandatory.

Please let us know if you are interested in attending the seder and how many will be accompanying you.  Please also let us what you will be bringing to share at this vegan seder.  If you need advice, please contact me.  

We hope you will be able to join us.

Study group: I/17/23 3 pm : Mass shootings

America’s recent history has been overwhelmed by mass shootings.    School children, gays, Hispanics, Blacks, Jews, and others have been premeditated victims.   Is there a common link among the perpetrators?  Does  race, religion, or ideology provide them their rationale?  What factors have been unifying them?

A second major factor is the excess of guns, many of which are illegal.  Millions are hand guns.  Some of the guns are high powered weapons of war.     Others are “ghost” guns which are produced by individuals  so they are untraceable.   The NRA’s power and the warping of the Second Amendment complicate the whole situation.

Beth Haskalah’s winter study groups are only  available on zoom.  Please contact Barry Swan at or 585-329-3305 if you wish the link or have any other questions.
