Please note that due to precautions related to the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the Community Passover seder will not take place.

Or Haneshamah's Community Passover Seder will take place on Wednesday, April 8 at 6:00 pm.

This year we will again run two parallel seders, both at the Unitarian campus, 30 Cleary Ave:

• A community seder geared for families with children of all ages but open to anyone who would like a shorter seder of about an hour. Share the four cups and the four questions, enjoy the lively pace, a delicious meal, and all the familiar songs and customs.

• An immersive, leisurely seder led by Rabbi Liz. Dig into the perennial yet relevant questions around freedom, liberation, and identity. Engage the ritual practices and texts, imbued with contemporary resonance.

As space is limited, we will first open registration to OrH-affiliated households - members, Tishrey Visitors and Machaneh Shabbat households - and their guests. If we have places remaining after Tuesday, March 24 we will then welcome guests from the broader Ottawa community.
