Friends and families traditionally come to Cedar Village for Seder ceremonies and worship services and are welcome to do so again this year. The Kosher campus also welcomes others interested in participating in those activities, so long as they register in advance. Cedar Village is uniquely set up to serve the needs of the broadest spectrum of the Jewish community. Seder ceremonies and worship services are provided for both Liberal and Orthodox residents and their families.
