Eat, Pray, Crunch: An Earth-based Passover Seder
  • April 25, 2024 7:30 PM
St. Lydia’s, 304 Bond Street Brooklyn, NY

With six altars, four cups of wine, and one ecstatic ritual for welcoming dew, explore the seder plate symbols through smell, taste, touch, and story. Includes small group discussions, crafts, live music and singing, as well as a variety of new and old Passover delicacies.

This ritual serves as a return to the earth-based, embodied, and experiential rituals that form the origins of the seder we know today. Whether this is your first or your hundredth time going to a seder, there’s something new for you to learn and experience. Come connect with community as we receive the spring through an all-welcome, participatory gathering.

Presented in partnership with Shamir Collective, whose missions is: “Renewing the Jewish relationship with the earth through creative ritual, mindfulness, and transformative experiential learning.”

This is a 21+ event.

Our seder leaders will be Kohenet Shamirah aka Sarah Chandler, a weaver of earth-based rituals, along with musicians Éléonore Weill and Laura Elkeslassy who will lead and teach a medley of Passover songs in a range of Jewish languages, including Moroccan, Occitane, Yiddish, and Hebrew.
