Congregation B’nai Israel, a Reform Jewish synagogue in Fayetteville, will celebrate Passover with a community seder at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
The synagogue’s sanctuary is located on Highway 54 East near Corinth Road. Mike Edison, congregation president, said the event will be open to all members of the community.
More information is available by telephoning the synagogue office at 678-817-7162. The service, which combines the Jewish liturgy for Passover with a catered traditional meal, will be led by Rabbi Ellen Nemhauser and by Susan Burden, the congregation’s cantorial soloist.

The service also will include festive songs and traditional stories.

Nemhauser has led services at B’nai Israel on frequent occasions during the past two years. Originally from Canada, she holds an honors degree in music education from the University of Toronto.

She was ordained after rabbinic studies in Israel and Los Angeles and at the New York campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, where she also completed the Master of Jewish Education program.

Burden, who succeeded the late Susan Levine as cantorial soloist last August, has become a key leader in the congregation’s educational and music activities since joining the synagogue in 1992. She has a degree in music education from the University of Tennessee and for 12 years was an elementary and middle school librarian.
