Passover seder 2014

I am traveling to Tel Aviv to visit my teenage daughter on a school program along with her classmates, their parents and siblings. We are looking to meet up and spend Passover seder together. There are 25 of us all together. The group is willing to spend about $70.00 per person. I checked with the David Intercontinental and they are $235.00 per person, way too much! Are there any ideas out there? Thank-you so much!

i'm not sure if this is suitable for you but why don't you call Mishkenot Ruth/Beit Daniel in Jaffa. It's about a 15 minute easy walk to your hotel. Mishkenot Ruth is part of the Israel Reform Movement and is a guest house/cultural center. it's not fancy, and is nothing like David Intercontinental, but it might be a good option for you to check out. I'm pretty sure they are kosher (please ask) but I don't know about the kitniyot issue. Some hotels will allow you to do your own private seder and with others you will have to join the main one so ask about that as well.

Hotels that allow you to conduct your own seder STILL require that you use THEIR food and pay THEIR prices!

correct rgdlady - what i meant to say was that some hotels will allow you to hold your own seder in a private room (with their food and service and prices). I am pretty sure that Beit Daniel is less expensive than some of the other hotels in that area, (as it isn't a fancy hotel but rather a guest house/youth hostel) and as i said, it's about a 15 minute walk back to their hotel.

Eluna has a page for Saturday & holiday take-away kosher food:

There is no information yet for Passover 2014 but you could try calling the caterers/restaurants that are listed.

It looks like an option, the Tel Aviv International Synagogue holds a public Seder http://www.metzion.org/. Need to enroll by April 9th.

Hey! I guess it's going to be hard to find something for your price. I guess the best option I can recommend you is going to a Passover dinner at someone's house - it will be fun, social, and cheaper. You can do it by either using http://homedine.com/ or http://www.eatwith.com/.

Tamy & sam from Eatwith are a great couple, and they have great recommendations, worth checking it for the holiday.

Is it my imagination, or are there a lot of new posters pushing this "Tamy & sam from Eatwith" option?

Also, the poster needs actual kosher-for-Passover food without kitniyot. Do "Tamy & sam from Eatwith" provide this?

It may make difference, if not to the OP, then to others reading this thread.
