The staff went through all the Seder customs with the children and each child received a box of three pieces of shmura matzah from Rabbi Mendel and Elke Zaltzman, directors of the school. As an annual tradition, elected officials from Bergen County attended the event to show solidarity with the children, and particularly this year, with Israel. Proclamations discussing education and Israel were presented.

Rabbi Mordechai Kanelsky expressed gratitude to all the elected officials for taking the time to come and show their solidarity. Each elected official also received a box of matzos and had the opportunity to sell chametz and don tefillin.
