A Modern Take on the Passover Seder

April 25, 2019 7-9 PM
at Awbury Arboretum

Every Spring, Jewish people around the world celebrate Passover, an eight-day holiday that commemorates the Jews’ liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt. Passover is celebrated with a Seder, a meal that is part overindulgence and part history lesson. The defining feature (besides the food!) is the reading of the Haggadah, a book that tells the story of Passover and that is read before and after the meal. As someone who grew up in a Jewish community, Chef Sue Wasserkrug discovered, as an adult, that the Passover Seder is most rewarding when Jewish and non-Jewish people come together to remember a difficult time in the past and to look forward to a day when we can live together in peace and freedom.

Join us for a non-traditional Passover Seder. There will be plenty of matzo ball soup, brisket, and potato kugel, as well as a few dishes you might not have enjoyed at a traditional Seder, but we’ll dispense with the Haggadah and offer instead just a hint of a history lesson.

Cost: $40 per person, BYOB, Registration ends Monday, 4/22
Location: the Cope House at Awbury Arboretum, 1 Awbury Rd, Phila, PA 19138
