  • This page is for the Sedar in Boston. Please see this page for the event in Seattle.

The Things to Buy sections contains things we need and do not have yet. The Things We're Bringing is the place to put stuff you want to bring. Feel free to move something from things to buy to things to bring and put your name next to it so we know someone has that. You can also add something not already on the list--this can be ingredients, toys, cooked dishes, or anything else you think up. Things to cook is a good place to write suggestions for dinner.

It'd be really nice if you add your name under People if you are planning on attending, so we have an idea of how big to make dinner.

No dress code, although yarmulke encouraged.
