Central Synagogue seder tent

Documenting Central Synagogue’s Seder Tent

Central Synagogue had an idea for an innovative twist on their annual community Passover seder. Before serving the meal as usual in their pavilion, they would hold the service in their sanctuary. But the sanctuary was too large for the intimate event. So they erected a tent to enclose a space less than half the size of the sanctuary. They hired a company to sell them the materials and set it up the first time, expecting that they would do subsequent installations themselves. They asked me to document the installation with photographs they could use later to recreate the setup.
