About this event
For over 2,000 years, Middle Eastern and North African Jews have celebrated the Jewish New Year by incorporating a unique seder into their Rosh Hashanah meal. The traditional Sephardic Seder includes symbolic foods, Sephardic blessings, and ancient songs known as piyyutim. We invite families and people of all ages and backgrounds to join together in community as welcome the Jewish New Year of 5782. We hope is to see as many children and elders as possible during this seder!
