Happy Passover imageJoin us in a celebration of Passover, one of the most widely-celebrated rituals in Judaism. It is the one holiday celebrated by many families that are otherwise non-observant. Why? Probably because it uses ancient memories of our ancestors to remind us of our obligation to build a better world for everyone. In other words, Service above Self.

Susan Dean and Scott Plakun will lead us through a Passover Seder, the retelling of the story of how the Jews were liberated from slavery in ancient Egypt, and what we can learn from that experience today.
The menu has been specially designed to feature traditional foods that are consistent with the special dietary rules followed by observant Jews all over the world during the eight-day Passover holiday. In 2022, Passover starts on April 15 and ends on April 23.

The Seder teaches us that the time we spent as needy strangers in Egypt compels us to care for others. If you will be attending this meeting in person, please consider bringing one or more pairs of new crew-style socks for men or for women. These socks will be donated to the young adults in the California Conservation Corp. who respond to natural and manmade disasters.

This is a regular membership meeting of the Rotary Club of San Francisco, open to all Rotarians, visiting Rotarians, prospective members, and guests.

For in-person attendees: Please note that once President Mary provides the headcount to the Hotel Nikko on the Friday before our Tuesday meeting, we will be billed for that count regardless of whether you show or not. Therefore, it is important to let her know if you are unable to attend after registering, but no later than Sunday night. If you are a no-show without notifying her ahead of time, the Club will be billed the cost of the meal and will have to pass the cost down to you. We hope to not have to do this.

Parking: If you are driving to the Hotel Nikko for this meeting, please leave your car with the Hotel Nikko valet. Pick up a validation sticker available at our check-in table. The discounted parking is $17.50 for three hours.

Proof of Vaccination Required

To maximize the health and safety of Rotarians, guests, speakers, and the staff at the Hotel Nikko (where we meet), all in-person attendees must provide proof of vaccination. Masks are optional during the event. We recommend that fully vaccinated individuals wear masks when the risk may be high.
