4 Passover Seders at Gesher

First Night Community Seder, Especially for Young Families: Monday, April 10, 5:30 pm  (Sorry, this seder is now full.  Please select another seder.)

Everyone knows "make believe."  Gesher will provide the slave clothing, exit visas and a feast for our Passover seder journey from slavery to freedom.  Children and adults are invited into a participatory celebration. We will role play our jobs in Egypt, build pyramids, find our way through the desert, escape through the sea and feast in freedom, (while both seriously and humorously contemplating what this means to us.)  Bring pillows to sit on and warm clothing for sitting in a heated tent part of the evening.  This seder is especially for families with children under 8.  All are welcome.  (Sorry, this seder is now full.  Please select another seder.)

 

Second Night Community Seder: Tuesday, April 11, 5:30 pm (Sorry, this seder is now full.  Please select another seder.)

This is the most important story that we live: the passage from slavery to freedom defines us as a people.  It cultivates our soulful search for justice.  We confront the Pharaohs of our day and frolic in freedom.  Gesher will provide the slave clothing, exit visas and a feast for our Passover seder journey from slavery to freedom.  Children and adults are invited into a participatory celebration. We will role play our jobs in Egypt, build pyramids, find our way through the desert, escape through the sea and feast in freedom, (while both seriously and humorously contemplating what this means to us.)  Bring pillows to sit on and warm clothing for sitting in a heated tent part of the evening.  This seder is especially for families with children 8 and over.  All are welcome.  (Sorry, this seder is now full.  Please select another seder.)

Adult Seder/Shabbat Dinner: Friday, April 14, 6:00 pm

Join us for a last night of Passover Gesher tradition, enjoying Passover as adults, figuring out what's really in it for us, exploring wandering, narrow places, journeying toward freedom in our own lives and in our world. Come open to some artistic creativity and sharing.

Women and Girls Seder: Sunday, April 16, 3 pm

The journey from Egypt was begun on the bravery of the midwives.  Miriam led the dance and song at the sea.  The voices of women and girls reflecting on this journey need to be heard and celebrated today in a special way.  Join us for this celebration.
