Black Tie International:
Jewish Family Services Pre-Passover Model Seder

Over 200 attend JFS Pre-Passover Model Seder

Boca Raton, FL—[March 30, 2015]— Over 200 clients of Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services (JFS) joined together at JFS’ Pre-Passover Model Seder, held at B'nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton on March 24th.

Danielle Hartman, JFS President and CEO said, “The seder is open to any client of the agency, whether they use services for seniors, case management, the food pantry or benefits for Holocaust survivors.

"We've been holding these seders for 15 years," Hartman continued. "It allows our clients who may or may not be able to go to a seder on the actual holiday to get a taste of the holiday and to get out and have some human connection. Our clients look forward to it all year."

Said JFS client Marc Goldsmith stated “I am glad I came and excited to see how other people lead a seder.  I was one of the ‘hidden children’ raised in a convent in Belgium during the Holocaust.  Passover is a special holiday for me as it is the celebration of freedom.” 

JFS Director of Community Engagement, Rabbi Josh Broide led the service, along with parachaplains Estelle and Harry Green.  Students from Donna Klein Jewish Academy participated in the seder by reciting the Four Questions and singing traditional seder songs.

Residents of the Boca West Federation Committee sponsored the event for the seventh year in a row, along with Debbie & Howard Belford, and Suzanne and Jack Jacobson.  

Debbie Belford commented on what a great event the Model Seder is.  “It is important for our community’s seniors to be able to celebrate Passover with friends.  For many of them, this is the only seder they have.”  Suzanne Jacobson added, “I feel like my parents are at this event. Being raised in an Orthodox home, I remember that our entire family traveled from where ever they were to be home for Passover.  This event provides a family atmosphere and I love being a part of it.”

Hartman concluded: "There is just no way we could do this event without the generous contributions from the wonderful people of Boca West, the Belfords and the Jacobsons. We at JFS are grateful for their partnership.”

Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services (JFS) provides help, hope and humanity through a comprehensive range of programs and services which support people of all ages and beliefs. With locations in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, JFS programs and services include food and financial assistance, senior services, career and employment services, counseling and mental health services and many volunteer opportunities. Funding is provided by private and corporate support, grants, special events and individuals who reach thousands in need each year. For more information about JFS volunteer opportunities and services for seniors, contact 561-852-3333. Learn more at
