Children Invited to Ice Cream Passover Seder at FVJN!

All children ages 3 through 12 are invited to join Fox Valley Jewish Neighbors’ Sunday School students for an Ice Cream Seder to celebrate Passover.

In FVJN’s children’s seder, all the symbolic foods will be represented by different ice cream toppings. Each child will receive a bowl of ice cream and the toppings

will be added as the story of Passover is told. A non-dairy ice cream substitute will be available upon request.

The Ice Cream Seder will be held on Sunday, April 9 at Fox Valley Jewish Neighbors from 9:30 to 11:30 am. Children will also make a craft and watch A Rugrats Passover.

Parents are encouraged to stay to observe.

There is no charge for this event but reservations are required in order to ensure that enough seats are available.

Reserve space for your child by going to https://www.fvjn.org/fox-valley-jewish-school/ice-cream-seder-rsvp/ on or before April 6, and include if your child needs nondairy ice cream or has any other food allergies that might be triggered by toppings.

Additional information is available by emailing info@fvjn.org .
