RAVS 2nd Night Passover Seder

Tuesday, April 15, 2014. Our 21st annual 2nd night Passover Seder (shared event with Jewish Humanist Group).

Brighton Town Park Lodge, 777 Westfall Rd.

Doors open at 4:30 PM. Service 6:00 PM, followed by a vegan share-a-dish meal.

RULES FOR THE SEDER: Bring a dish that is vegan and also conforms to the Passover tradition. No wheat is allowed (no pasta, bread, crackers or cookies) except matzoh and matzoh products such as farfel and matzoh meal—but no egg matzoh because it is not vegan. This tradition is a reminder that the Israelites had time only to prepare unleavened bread (represented by the matzoh) when they fled Egypt. Beans, potatoes, veggies and fruits are fine to bring for this meal. You don’t need to be Jewish (or vegan) to come and enjoy this very beautiful commemoration of freedom and liberation from oppression in all of its forms.

Call 234-8750 to reserve. Volunteers needed for set-up and clean-up.
