2018 Liberation Seder (dinner)

If you have never attended a Passover seder, this is your chance to do so. If you support the Palestinian cause, this is a very pleasant culinary opportunity to demonstrate your support.

At Passover, Jewish families traditionally celebrate with a ritual family dinner at which the story of the liberation of the ancient Hebrews from oppression in the land of Egypt is recited. Seder means “order”—the order of the meal and ritual of Pesach that Jews all over the world have participated in for centuries. It is customary among Jews to invite guests, both Jewish and non-Jewish, to join their Passover celebration.

Our seder in Hamilton is dedicated to a free Palestine and the liberation of all peoples. And YOU are invited!
