COST: $10 or what you can pay
B’nai Or is pleased to announce that we will be holding a community seder once again for the first night of Passover, Friday, April 22. This year, Passover coincides with Earth Day, and so we will be celebrating the holiday marking the freedom from slavery and oppression, the arrival of spring in the western hemisphere, as well as the planet that is our home and that hosts all life. Come celebrate Pesach and Earth Day in community – Pesach food and beverages are all included.
Freedom Plate
This year, in addition to our Seder plate, we will add a Freedom Plate to our table! Bring a small item that symbolically represents a personal freedom that you achieved this year.
Also bring…
You are also welcome to bring a musical instrument, freedom songs, and Kosher for Passover wine (if you prefer wine to grape juice).
