CBST First Night Community Passover Seder 5784

Monday, April 22, 6:00 p.m., More Info & Registration to be Announced

Each year, we bring the sweetest traditions of feasting and gathering together with the prayers and songs of this joyous holiday as we tell stories that strengthen our core identities. We find it especially meaningful to experience this journey with our CBST family. This night is different from all other nights, as it should be, and yet it will feel cozy, warm, and familiar.

Our Passover Seder will draw on texts and rituals—old and new—that illuminate the ancient story of rebellion and flight from tyranny. In true CBST fashion, our Seder will connect to ways in which these struggles are relevant today and the spiritual means by which we can continue to move towards a world of freedom and justice.

Halacha (Jewish law) prohibits eating chametz (leaven) during Pesach. Did you know we are also forbidden to own chametz or even to have it on our premises? Tradition provides a legal procedure: we can sell our chametz and, an hour after the end of the holiday, purchase it back (without actual delivery or pick-up). This year, Rabbi Werber will serve as your “Chametz Agent.” There is no fee; however, there is a tradition of making a contribution (maot chittim) to help make it possible for others to have a Seder meal. Please click here for the chametz selling form.
