Seder Celebration

Wednesday, March 21
6-7:30pm 
Simpson Hall​​

Bring the entire family for an educational and religious experience like no other!  Join us for a modified Seder Celebration, which is the Jewish ritual service and ceremonial dinner observed on the first night or first two nights of Passover (March 30 - April 7, 2018) and the tradition upon which Jesus established the Lord's Supper.

The Seder retells the story of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. The Seder itself is based on the Exodus 13:8, commanding Jews to retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt: “You shall tell your child on that day, ‘It is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.’” Traditionally, Seder customs include telling the story, discussing the story, drinking four cups of wine (grape juice), eating matzo, partaking of symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate, and celebrating freedom.

Shawn Hannaisburg-Wood, a regular attender at Geneva and Family Programming Leader for the Jewish Collaborative of Orange County, will lead us through a modified Seder and the Rev. Dr. Steven Marsh will speak to the Christian interpretation of the Seder tradition. 

  • Cost is $10 per person and includes a chicken, vegetable and salad dinner (children age four and under are free)

  • Intentional programming for children birth through 5th grade is provided

  • Register below by:  March 18
