Or Emet Seder Celebrates Passover in the Humanistic Tradition 

On April 20, 2019 at 5-8 pm, Or Emet’s potluck Passover Seder will be held at The First Unitarian Society, 900 Mt. Curve Avenue, Mpls, MN 55403

Or Emet’s Seder celebrates Passover with a Humanistic Jewish service led by Eva Cohen, Rabbinic Candidate and Ritual Leader. We read from a Humanist Haggadah, which includes both the legendary tale of the exodus from Egypt and modern Jewish exodus stories. Children from the Jewish Cultural School, adults and families all share in the festivities.

Or Emet members and visitors are invited to join us for a meal of traditional Passover foods, roast turkey, and vegetarian alternatives. Everyone contributes to the potluck. Since Passover originated as an agricultural festival of unleavened bread and later a celebration of freedom and renewal, we request only unleavened food contributions.

Registration is from April 3 until April 17 (or until maximum is reached). Reservations are required, capacity is limited, and members receive priority. If interested in attending, send email with contact information to seder@oremet.org during the reservation period.

We depend on people pitching in to help since this event is planned, organized, and staffed by volunteers. Please sign-up to help with tasks such as welcoming, arranging table place settings, helping with food, and cleanup.

Recommended Fees

Members – $20 per family $10 for individual attendees; Visitors – $20 for adults/teens; $10 for children 5-13 yrs; free for children under 5 years; $60 family maximum. Regrettably, these fees represent an increase which is necessitated by the high cost of Or Emet’s Passover Seder.

Additional donations are welcome!

For questions, contact seder@oremet.org.

We look forward to celebrating Passover with you!
