First Night Seder for 20s/30s

The First Night Seder For 20s/30s will begin at 6:00pm with a wine-tasting.

The egalitarian, community seder itself starts at 6:30 pm and ends about 10:00 p.m. Rabbi Moishe Steigmann will again co-lead the seder with Rabbi Judith Hauptman and Cantorial Soloist Josh Gorfinkle. At this seder for 20s/30s there will be several opportunities to meet others who are not sitting at your table.

Sitting around a spread of veggies, baba ganouch and other snacks, we will delve this year, as we have done in the past, into "A Different Night, The Family Participation Haggadah." You are welcome to take it home when the seder is over. We will read (sometimes in Hebrew and sometimes in English), sing, discuss and debate. And also schmooze. After dipping into the haggadah (pun intended!) for about two hours, we will be served dinner buffet style. And after that, Grace, Miriam’s Cup, Hallel and a lot of singing. 

10 seats will be set aside for walk-ins.

Menu 2019: gefilte fish, chicken, tossed salad, ratatouille, carrot tzimmis, matzah farfel wifh mushrooms, assorted sours and olives. And matzah balls in vegetarian gravy (not in soup!). Carbonated beverage. A cookie dessert follows. Matzah unlimited. Wine — the traditional four cups.

All food is kosher for Passover. Because of kashrut policies, you may NOT bring any food or drink with you to the seder.
