Make Your Own Haggadah!
Sun March 5 @ 15:00 - 17:00
Thinking of hosting a Passover Seder but don’t know where to start? On March 5, join us with Rosie and daph for a hands-on workshop that will help you create your own personalized Haggadah and plan a Seder that feels right for you and your community, whether that means family, friends, organizers or strangers. Facilitators Rosie Long Decter and daph ben david will go over the history of the Haggadah, their own personal experiences putting Haggadahs together, and provide examples and prompts for building the Haggadah of your dreams.
All levels of experience and familiarity with Seders, Hebrew, and Jewish Practice (including none!) are welcome.
To keep this event inclusive and safe for our communities, masks will be required. Rapid tests will also be available for free on site for anyone wishing to use them. Please note that the upper levels of our building are not currently accessible to visitors with limited mobility. This event will take place on the ground floor.
This event is presented in partnership with Mile End Chavurah.
