Until this morning, I did not realize that Tuesday’s town hall meetings were scheduled for the same night as the second Passover Seder. I guess that the two events were compartmentalized in my mind so I did not respond to this scheduling conflict. I am now perplexed as to why other people of the Jewish faith in, even one of the three towns on the Island, did not bring this conflict to someone’s attention. Even the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center, which will be providing a ritual dinner on the same evening, failed to notify anyone. I, along with other Jewish people will not be able to attend the three meetings scheduled this week.

I hope this problem will be avoided in the future.
