On behalf of Stephanie, Alexa, Jordan and myself, I would like to thank you all for joining us at the first Seder we’ve ever hosted in our new home. We are so grateful that you are all able to join us in this joyous festival meal that is sure to be as delicious as it memorable.

While the word seder literally means order, for our family it has another special meaning, it also means memories. Each year of our lives we have sat at our family's seder table, building a treasure chest of memories rich with tradition, love, and yiddishkeit, from which we draw each day of our lives. As children we sat at the table of our parents and as we became parents, we set the table for our children.

We thank everyone here for joining us tonight and helping us add to the beauty of the memory of all those with whom we have been blessed to share a seder over the years. In the words of someone most of here will recognize, "Thanks for the memories" - for being part of them and for helping us to make more of them. Now, let's get started.
