 All are welcome at our annual Seder Supper !

The Seder is the traditional Passover meal that includes reading, drinking four cups of wine, telling stories, eating special foods, a full meal, singing, and other Passover traditions. At St. Paul’s, as a non-Jewish congregation, our celebration includes both traditional and non-traditional aspects of the Seder. Our aim is to honor this most important of Jewish celebrations, the Passover, and seek its lessons for each one of us personally.  This we attempt with sincerity, joy and a sense of spiritualty.

Passover is the most commonly celebrated holiday among Jewish people and lasts for eight days. This retelling of the "exodus story" (the Hebrews escaping from slavery in Egypt) is often interpreted as a promise of liberation for all who are oppressed. This story is told in Exodus, chapters 1-15; many of the Passover observances are instituted in chapters 12-15. On the first two nights of Passover, the Seder meal is eaten. Some Unitarian Universalist congregations will have a Passover Seder on one of those days, or a date close to then.

St. Paul’s Seder is held each year on the Saturday before the start of the Christian Holy Week.
