Online Second Night Seder
For the Wise, the Rebellious, The Curious, and the One Who Does Not Yet Understand:
An Online Second Night Seder with SAJ-Judaism that Stands for All
The wise, the rebellious, curious, and ones who do not know what questions to ask — are welcome at our online Second Night Seder. Through traditional liturgy, music, community participation, exploration and conversation, we will seek to, as our tradition invites, “see ourselves as if we went free from Egypt.” We will explore themes of narrow places, freedom, joy and justice as we move through the evening. All are welcome to join, though content will be geared for teens to adults.
A Passover Seder is an experiential, sensory, joyful experience. To that end, we would love to maximize participation. Let us know if you would like to be involved in any of the following ways. No guarantees based on our various planning needs and time constraints, but we hope to include you!
We will be using A Night of Questions Haggadah as a base and supplementing with slides of additional songs and readings. We encourage everyone to have A Night of Questions Haggadah either by downloading the PDF or by ordering at the Reconstructionist Press. Reconstructing Judaism, with the gracious permission of Rabbi Joy Levitt and Rabbi Michael Strassfeld, has made the PDF version of the Reconstructionist Haggadah, A Night of Questions, available in light of the pandemic. If you would like to make a gift in appreciation of this digital download, and help us continue to offer meaningful Reconstructionist resources to the broadest possible audience, please click here.
