Haggadah Workshop

March 27 & April 3, 7:00-9:00 p.m.

The Haggadah, which means "telling" in Hebrew, is a written guide to the Passover seder, which commemorates the Israelites' Exodus from Egypt. The Haggadah includes various prayers, blessings, rituals, fables, songs and information for how the seder should be performed. (Learn more on MyJewishLearning.com.)

Join our clergy team as we bring the Haggadah to life and prepare for our various family and communal seders!

We will spend the first session of our time together (March 27) learning about the different elements of the Haggadah before we divide into groups and create a new Haggadah for our community during the second session (April 3).

You will also walk away ready to lead your own Passover seder. We will get to know one another, while breathing new life into our Passover celebrations.

Come and learn the tools to create a new Haggadah for your family and friends!


About Passover

Pesach, known as Passover in English, is a major Jewish spring festival, commemorating the Exodus from Egypt over 3,000 years ago. The ritual observance of this holiday centers around a special home service called the seder (meaning "order") and a festive meal; the prohibition of chametz (leaven); and the eating of matzah (an unleavened bread). On the fifteenth day of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, Jews gather with family and friends in the evening to read from a book called the hagaddah, meaning "telling," which contains the order of prayers, rituals, readings and songs for the Passover seder. Today, the holiday is a celebration of freedom and family.
