On Saturday, April 8, from 4-7 p.m., Or Emet, the Minnesota Congregation for Humanistic Judaism, will host a Passover Seder at the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, 900 Mount Curve Ave., Minneapolis. Or Emet members and visitors are welcome to attend.
Or Emet’s Seder celebrates Passover with a Humanistic Jewish service led by rabbinic candidate and ritual leader Eva Cohen. The service emphasizes themes of human freedom and dignity, the capacity to change our destiny and the power of hope. Students from Or Emet’s Jewish Cultural Sunday School will add special contributions to the program.
The Seder will be a mostly masked event to protect the most vulnerable in our community. During the Seder service, attendees will only unmask to eat the ritual foods. The meal portion of the event, at the end of the Seder, will be unmasked. The event will be in a hybrid format and will have a Zoom option. Please register for the Zoom option here.
The dinner will be a Mediterranean-style, catered meal from Ansari’s, with chicken kabobs, rice, falafel, Greek salad, vegetarian stir-fry and hummus. The meal will include vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
For those who plan to attend the service portion of the Seder only, there is no charge. For the catered meal, the cost is:
- Adults (age 14 and over): $15 for adult members; $25 for non-members.
- Kids (age 0-13): $5 for members; $10 for non-members.
