A Spirited Second Night Seder

Passover is about many things. Cherishing our freedom. Committing ourselves to social justice. The power of storytelling. The bounty of spring.

Each year, we have an opportunity to celebrate, question, and interpret these themes. Each year, new faces show up around our Passover table, and the same story we’ve told holds new meaning.

This Passover, we brought our community together for a special pop-up Seder, aiming to ignite this very kind of meaning-making.

We questioned. We shared. We sang. We ate.

Our meal featured some of the best of the season: ramps, asparagus, nettles, lovage. We sourced from local producers and revived some of our family’s favorite recipes.

As my sister so beautifully put it – the evening made Seattle feel old and new, big and small all at once.

A special thank you to The PantryJCC, JConnect Seattle, Local Roots Farm, and the many friends and family who made our event possible.
