Recognizing that Passover is first and foremost a home Festival, TSTI does not hold a Congregational seder but endeavors to give each and every household in the congregation the tools necessary to hold their own meaningful seder and, when requested, find host households for those who are in need of such an opportunity.

At the end of the Passover festival TSTI holds a morning worship service at 10:30 a.m. As is the case during Sukkot and Shavout it closes the festival but also allows an opportunity to observe Yizkor and honor the memories of family members who have died. This service is followed by a light lunch.
