Oy. Being Jewish in Seattle is one thing. But being Jewish and newish in Seattle and having no place to go for Passover? It’s enough to make a mother write an email to The Stranger! Any of you comment mensches want to help?

Subject: Jewish Australian in Seattle
To Whom It May Concern,
I am a ‘Yiddishe Mother’ of a 33 year Jewish Australian girl working in Seattle. She has been there for a year now, working in the IT industry. Although not ‘frum,’ she did go to a Jewish co-educational school for 12 years, i.e. elementary and high school. We, as a non-kosher keeping family, have always celebrated Pesach and Rosh Hashanah and I’d like my daughter to have somewhere to go this Pesach. She lives in Capitol Hill.
Is there a community Seder [she doesn’t keep Kosher] or some sort of social venue applicable for her? She hasn’t met any Jewish people in Seattle, except for one Israeli at work. Of course, she doesn’t know that I’m sending this email.
Thanking you in anticipation and Chag Sameach for Pesach.
