Come and retell the story of our ancestors’ liberation at a warm and friendly non-denominational seder, with a home-grown created-by-the-community atmosphere, and a sumptuous creative menu designed by our vegan chefs Tallie Samuels and Zoe Marks.
Our Seder and your contributions will be woven together by Kohenet Rachel Rose Reid, who will bring together your contributions, giving space for as many voices as possible to share in the retelling of the story. Favourite traditional songs and essential moments of the Seder will be accompanied by poetry, innovations, and ideas to chew over with friends old and new.
Our delicious dinner will be strictly Kosher for Pesach, with supervision from Rabbi Eliyahu Goldsobel.
Kids are encouraged to take part, but there’ll also be a designated area with toys for them if they need it.
