As one of the three pilgrimage festivals in which Jews are told to gather and show our faces before God, Passover calls upon us to remain curious and follow the path God aligns before us. Passover, the quintessential freedom story, is also rich with themes that can shed light on modern experiences, challenges, and gifts. In 2024, we focus on the mystical event of the splitting of the sea - a miracle - bringing us to new possibilities through a special 7th night seder (sign up below). For Passover 2023, Rabbi Elyssa created a Seder Discussion Guide on Immigration (found below). In celebration of Passover 2022, Rabbi Elyssa produced an Autism Awareness podcast (last on the page). Please scroll down for more.
Seder means order - not a meal - but an order of celebrating the glory of miracles and the crossing of the Sea. We will sing, dance, meditate, drum and have coffee & pesadik sweets. This promises to be a joyful and inspiring evening!

Seder Discussion Guide on Immigration
After a trip to the US/ Mexican Border in March 2023, Rabbi Elyssa was inspired to create a discussion guide focused on issues of human migration at the time that we are celebrating our freedom from slavery and the ability to have made our Exodus, with God's help.
