Saturday, April 20

second Night Community Seder.

The journey begins with the first step.

P'nai Or will be gathering to tell the story of Passover. We will also be using the exodus of our ancestors as a metaphor for coming out of our own personal "narrow places." Along with the traditional four questions, we ask ourselves:

                          What am I a slave to?

                          What does it mean, both communally and personally, 

                           to leave bondage and gain freedom?

Our Seder includes traditional and contemporary Haggadah readings, heartfelt discussion, and voices joyously raised in song.
