    Led by Ricki Weintraub

    Followed by a Dairy Potluck Dinner

              
     
    Pesach is the festival of our liberation from enslavement. In both ancient and contemporary times, we find ourselves enslaved, one way or another. BIJ is hosting a Feminist Seder, using the haggadah, Towards Freedom: A Feminist Haggadah for Men & Women, by author and artist Heather Mendel.  Using the music of Debbie Friedman and other contemporary musicians, we will participate in a Kabbalistic interpretation of the ancient exodus from Mitzraim. Our seder is a wonderful way to prepare for Pesach.

    * Teens age 13 and up are welcome, free of charge.
    * Please bring a dairy or vegetarian dish to share (no desserts, please).
    * Copies of the haggadah will be available for sale for $20 each. You are not required to purchase a haggadah to attend and participate in the seder.
