CELEBRATING PASSOVER

Second Night Community Seder

Led by Rabbi Rachel Timoner, Rabbi Stephanie Kolin, Cantor Josh Breitzer & Student Cantor Jordan Goldstein

Sunday, March 28 at 6 PM over Zoom

The clergy team invites you to find an object in your house that represents connection to you, something that holds things together, like a paper clip or a binder clip. This will symbolize the idea that all year long, every kind of force has separated us from each other, and distanced us from each other, but we have managed to stay connected and that is a triumph. The word in Hebrew for paper clip is machber or chibuk. Chibuk also means hug. As a symbol of the ways we have persevered and the ways that we have hugged each other from afar, we invite you to find a symbol of connection and put it on your Seder plate.

Miriam’s Crisis: A Musical Sing-Along Dance Party Second Night Seder by Brooklyn Jews

Led by Rabbi Matt Green & Rabbinic Intern Eliza Scheffler

Sunday, March 28 at 5 PM over Zoom

Having Zoom Seder deja vu? We are, too. Instead of hosting another three-hour get-through-the-Haggadah by Zoom, we’ll be hosting a special virtual Seder that’s more like a festive party to get us in the Passover spirit. We’ll sing and dance, with a few special guests. And we’ll also include some familiar traditions and halachically required rituals to scratch your Seder itch. Join us! Free and open to all.
