Join us for an in-person Passover Community Seder continuing to explore the High Holy Day themes of reciprocity and mutuality. We will re-enter the Exodus story through Ashkenazi and Sephardi song, food and ritual. Co-led by Rabbi SAM Luckey, Hazzan Shulamit Wise Fairman, and Oreget Adamah (Earth Weaver) Wren Ganin-Pinto, with a special teaching by our beloved Dee Ward, Kehilla Office Administer and long time member of First African Methodist Episcopal Church.

The evening features a mesmerizing Sephardic-inspired seder vegan meal, with fish and gluten-free options, catered by chef Jesse Bloom’s Sacred Kitchen SF.

Bring a cushion to get comfy and lean to the left! (leaning is a custom of Passover)
