For thousands of years, Jews have gathered around the table to tell the story of Passover. The themes of the Seder: enslavement, freedom, and redemption are timeless and relevant to almost any era in human history.
The Passover Seder has served as a forum for discussion and exploration of current issues through the lens of a 4,000 year old story about the beginning of Judaism as we know it today. The word seder in Hebrew roughly translates to “order.” It helps to walk us through a curated experience designed to make us not only remember the past but apply its lessons to our future.

- Take pictures and show us what Passover looks like for you so we can share that with the rest of our global community!
