Each year, New Unity celebrates freedom at Passover with a communal Seder meal. The Seder is the traditional Jewish celebration for Passover - a holiday commemorating the tragedy of slavery and the joy of liberation and freedom for all people.
We hope that many will attend, as in previous years. All are welcome, whether part of the New Unity community or not. In fact, this is a very good event at which to get to know the community outside of a regular Sunday services
The Seder features the telling of the Passover story along with special foods to symbolize joy, bitterness, tears, freedom, etc. There are shared readings, and we also do some joyous singing. The ceremony part is followed by a substantial feast! We use a specially designed Unitarian Haggadah (the guide to the Seder's readings and songs) that is in tune with our inclusive values.
This is a communal meal and we need each person to contribute by bringing something, making a financial contribution, or helping with set-up and serving, or with clean-up.
If bringing food, be sure to bring enough for at least 10 moderate servings.
IMPORTANT: please note that everything - whether purchased or made at home - must be both vegetarian and 'kosher for passover.' The rules about Kosher for Passover foods can be confusing, but if you use a recipe designed for Passover, you will be fine. You can find your own recipes on the web or in books.
