Adventures in alternate arrangements

Unfortunately, the would-be hosts of both sedarim that we expected to attend ran into some unavoidable difficulties and had to cancel. I certainly hope that matters improve in both households soon.

My husband and I will be strolling over to a local Orthodox synagogue for both sedarim. Given the average age of the shul-goers in our neighborhood, we wouldn't be surprised to find ourselves, at 70 and 63 respectively, among the youngest people in attendance. Mah Nishtanah, anyone? :)

Our local Conservative synagogue also finds itself between a rock and a hard place. As luck would have it, our Sunday-morning renters cannot be asked to find a place other than our sanctuary in which to pray on the second day of Pesach/Passover because it also happens to be Easter, and our Christian neighbors need a place to "davven" on their holiest day of the year. So, even though the synagogue owns the building, our congregation will be banished to the basement. To be honest, I'd rather shlep to our "seder synagogue" than davven in the "Dungeon" on a Yom Tov/Holiday morning, but I'm afraid that, if I don't show up, we may not get a minyan. Oh, well. If this is my worst problem, I can count myself lucky indeed.
